Fantastic work from jazz organ genius Doug Carn – a player who’s been off most folks’ radar for a few decades, but has continued to make some really wonderful music of his own! This set’s got Doug in tighter, sharper formation than on his 70s classics for the Black Jazz label – working with a quartet that features really searing work on tenor from Howard Riley and Teodross Avery – paired up and soaring to the skies with the bold, modal lines that flow from Carn’s fingers with effortless ease! There’s no bass at all on the record – Doug handles all of that with the foot pedals – and drummer Deszon Claiborne really gets the groove right, with a mix of complexity and swing that really echoes Doug’s best impulses on the Hammond. Titles include “Bad Attitude”, “Search For Peace”, “Beyond All Limits”, “Free For All”, “Spiritual Sunrise Spiritual Sunset”, and a great version of “Little B’s Poem” – different than the style Doug used on the tune in the 70s.
