Though many modern listeners consider jazz cerebral and difficult, it was actually the original party music. Enter Jimmy McGriff, the Hammond B-3 master who’s so beloved that the jazz, blues, funk and R&B communities all claim him as one of their own. The Philly-bred keyboardist was a mainstay on the night club circuit, R&B charts and dance halls, where he see-sawed between gritty, blues-soaked recordings and the streamlined, ever-propulsive funk of tracks such as “Big Booty Bounce.” This may be a swaying good-time funk number but McGriff, who studied at Julliard and played in juke joints, floats above the fray with grace and rare ease. Ironic, considering the down and dirty name the tune carries -- Nick Dedina
