Let Em Roll
Limited vinyl LP reissue of this Jazz classic released to coincide with the Blue Note label's 75th anniversary celebration. Let 'em Roll is an album by American organist Big John Patton recorded in 1965. Big John Patton was one of the most in-demand hard bop and soul jazz organists during the golden era of the Hammond B-3 organs between 1963 and 1970. He was a major figure in the development of the funk and blues-rooted jazz style known as soul jazz and is considered a roots player who inspired the acid jazz movement. He recorded extensively for Blue Note, and performed or collaborated with Lloyd Price, Grant Green, Lou Donaldson, and John Zorn. His music evolved to incorporate modal and free jazz, without ever losing the basic, minimalist groove that he brought to it from the beginning.
