Organ and Keyboard Cavalcade Review by Ian King
This Organ Lounge series started back in 2008 with David Last producing volume one at the Hammond XE200. Larry Green took over for volume two in 2011 switching to a Yamaha Tyros 2 and now we have the third instalment four years later (and two keyboard upgrades with a Tyros 4). As with John Kyffin, this is Larry’s twenty-seventh CD release (since 1999).
David Last’s initial volume seemed akin to 1950s Hammond LPs and matched the ‘lounge’ title, while Larry’s volumes two and three are more of a toe-tapping ‘singalong’ style electronic / Wurlitzer mix (with the vibrato set on fast throughout, rather than a variable Leslie simulation). However, this sound is a popular one and if you enjoyed volume two, then you will enjoy this.
Highlights include, “I Hear Music”, “Dream / If I Give My Heart To You”, “Here’s That Rainy Day / Girls Were Made To Love and Kiss”, “Wheels”, “La Cucaraca” and “Big Yellow Taxi / Things”.
