The 13 performances on this 1998 CD sampler feature a variety of the top jazz organists of the previous 40 years on selections (all easily available elsewhere) leased from Telarc, Fantasy, Sony, Polygram, Blue Note and Minor Music. Although the music is reasonably enjoyable, the poor documentation (no personnel listing or dates) is inexcusable. If one wonders who a particular guitar or saxophone soloist might be, they can keep on wondering or do their own research. Obviously, this release is primarily for the casual listener who simply desires some grooving background music. Heard from are Jimmy McGriff (teaming up with altoist Hank Crawford), Charles Earland, Joey DeFrancesco, Jimmy Smith, Lonnie Smith, Larry Goldings, Richard "Groove" Holmes (his hit version of "Misty"), Johnny "Hammond" Smith, Brother Jack McDuff, Medeski, Martin & Wood, Larry Young, Don Patterson and Will Bouleware.
