Make It Real Records MIT002
Dennis Keldie, Hammond organ
Bill Murray, guitar
Paul DeLong, drums
The name of this album lets you think of the northern country: Canada, where Dennis lives. But it derives from the fact that during the World War II, Hammond organs were built in Belleville, Ontario, and were called "Northern-Hammonds".
The Keldie trio, with traditional instrumentation, shows that good organ jazz is made not only in the USA, but also in the northern neighborhood. Dennis appeared earlier on the Toronto sessions album with many other Canadian organ players.
Dennis' organ play is in fact traditional, in the style of many organ players in the 60's who followed the paths of Jimmy Smith. It's good solid jazz without surprises.
