Lou Bennett  - Amen (& More) mp3 album

Lou Bennett (May 18, 1926, Philadelphia – February 10, 1997, Paris) was an American jazz organist. Bennett first played bebop on piano, but started playing organ in 1956 after hearing Jimmy Smith. Bennett toured the . with an organ trio between 1957 and 1959, and then moved to Paris in 1960. There he recorded and performed at the Blue Note with Jimmy Gourley and Kenny Clarke (as well as Rene Thomas); he returned to America only once, for the 1964 Newport Jazz Festival.

Lou Bennett began as a bop pianist, then switched to organ and became a solid player in the late '50s. With Jimmy Smith's virtuostic approach as inspiration, Bennett left piano behind in 1956, and toured the East and Midwest with his organ trio from 1957 through 1959. Bennett left America for Paris in 1960. He recorded there, played at the city's Blue Note club with Jimmy Gourley and fellow expatriate Kenny Clarke, who became one of his regulars alongside Rene Thomas. Brother Daniel 05.

Notes

+ 7 BONUS TRACKS APPEARING ON CD FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!!!

One of the finest performers on his instrument during the 1960s, American jazz organist Lou Bennett (1926-1997) was a bebop pianist prior to switching to the organ in 1956 after hearing Jimmy Smith. He toured the U.S. with an organ trio between 1957 and 1959, and then moved to Paris in 1960. There he recorded and performed at the Blue Note with Jimmy Gourley and Kenny Clarke, among others.

Both musicians are heard here (along with French bassist Jean-Marie Ingrand) backing Bennett on the LP "Amen" (RCA 430.050). Recorded in Paris and reissued here in its entirety, "Amen" marks the organist’s debut album as a leader.

As a bonus, seven extremely rare tracks have been added, all of them appearing here on CD for the first time ever. The first three tunes were recorded in 1962 and feature the organist playing duets with drummer René Nan. The last four tracks were the only ones featuring Bennett from the out of print LP Melodies sur l’oreiller (Bel Air 411.052), and feature the organist in a trio format, with pianist Pierre Spiers and Kenny Clarke again on drums.
