One of my favorite Jazz organists is Jimmy McGriff. I featured him on an earlier post regarding the album Electric Funk. While I love that album, my favorite McGriff album is this:
I really dig Lonnie Liston Smith's organ work as well, and have some albums of his that I enjoy, like Expansions. However, some of my favorite organ work of Smith is off of Lou Donaldson's Alligator Bogaloo album.
Alligator Bogaloo is a great album, and truly an all-star affair that features Lonnie Liston Smith on organ, and a young George Benson on guitar. Released in 1967, here is the classic cut "Alligator Bogaloo" which shows Smith at his best on the organ. Of course, Lou Donaldson is in top form with his saxophone on this cut as well.

|The Fat Boys in their hayday|
I'll contribute a more lengthy post later in the week when I have the time and energy, but in the meantime, enjoy one of my favorite videos of all time. Always a riot, The Fat Boys were the inspiration for my horribly attempted beatboxing back in the day as an impressionable 12 year old after seeing them for the first time on Yo! MTV Raps! many, many years ago. I still pull out the occasional Fat Boys track on a rare occasion...
