Big John Patton’s Let ‘Em Roll combines a standard organ trio (organ, guitar and drums) with Hutcherson’s vibraphone. It’s no coincidence that this album was released as part of Blue Note’s “Rare Groove” series. Most of the tracks are rooted in soul-jazz, and “groove” is precisely the right word to describe it.
Personnel: Big John Patton (organ); Grant Green (guitar, organ); Bobby Hutcherson (vibraphone); Otis Finch (drums).
