Put this spin on the "Hep" cycle and let it rotate, for it has the matchless signature that cleverly dispenses the art of cool rhythms. Linda Dachtyl and her jazz organ have orchestrated a tidy, little career of being one thing.... unique! The style has this old-school fervor to its music sheets.
Not one who is well-versed for songs in the "key" of organs, this plunge into a blues injected sound has me intrigued, in the affirmative sense. Curious as to how Ms. Dachtyl extracts such elegance and smooth cool from her keys, the arrangements offer imaginative flair and are blurred from textbook regulations. For Hep Cats takes the blues mentality and injects the jazz feel properly with a charismatic approach.
Just let the beat rip into your psyche with some in vogue spins like "Since I Fell for You," with Lady Nikki Scott just pulling you in with her bluesy seduction. On the other side of the tracks, Jazzmary climbs into your world as she takes her subtle tones, asking that intimate question, "Do I Move You?" which answers back with sly, yet racy intimacy. Two very fine pieces.... with the sway of the organ as the escort!
Ms. Dachtyl takes control on this spin and attaches a very pleasant and at times, naughty feel to it. This is one cool jazz fixture as independents go. Keep this spin tuned!
