Like Jimmy Smith, Larry Young chose the Hammond B-3 organ as his instrument, but his playing owed less to the blues than Smith’s and his mid-sixties work was more rhythmically and harmonically adventurous. This advanced hard-bop session includes the trumpeter Woody Shaw, one of the many excellent Clifford Brown followers who recorded for the Blue Note label.
