Jordan Young Group: The Jordan Young Group

Read "The Jordan Young Group" reviewed by Florence Wetzel


The Jordan Young Group is a terrific CD full of swing, spot-on timing, and beautiful melodies. The substitution of organist Brian Charette and guitarist Yotam Silberstein for the usual quartet line-up of bass and piano gives drummer Young's group a sonorous, spacious sound, and the disc's tasteful song selection nicely displays the musicians' considerable gifts.

Self-described as an organ group, Jimmy Smith and Jack McDuff are cited among its influences. Organ has been part of jazz since the Fats Waller days, but has never had an ongoing prominent role ...

Organ albums have always been the comfort food of jazz. Buying one of the classics from the fifties and sixties, the line-up is almost certain (guitar and/or sax, drums, never a bass), and a bunch of songs that would satisfy some primal need for deep, funky grooves. However, this predictability ensured that a lot of them ...

On their self-titled debut. New York-based Jordan Young and his group go through a mix of different sounds, from a straight-ahead Hammond-based version of Cole Porter's “Every Time We Say Goodbye" to the more experimental “PinGs"--four short interludes spread throughout the disc that hint at the band's desire to tackle contemporary material while still keeping their ...
