Mel Brown B-3 Organ Group
S. Morris


This CD is a direct-off-the-mixing-board recording of a set the band played opening for George Benson--no mixing or editing whatsoever.  But none was needed: the live engineer had ears, and the band was "on."  Mel loves to segue from one tune to the next; when he was a Motown sideman, he saw how entertaining medleys are.  In the case of this tune, we not only segued into and out of it: there's a segue into and out of another song (a blues shuffle) in mid-tune!  None of this was planned in advance; spontaneity is the name of the game when you play with Mel Brown!
