Newark-born organist Larry Young (October 7, 1940 - March 30, 1978) pioneered a modal approach to theHammond B-3 (in contrast to Jimmy Smith’s soul jazz style). Young played with various R&B bands in the 1950s before gaining jazz experience with Jimmy Forrest, Lou Donaldson, Kenny Dorham, Hank Mobley and Tommy Turrentine. Recording as a leader for Prestige from 1960, Young made a number of soul jazz discs, Testifying, Young Blues (presented here) and Groove Street. When Young signed with Blue Note around 1964, his music began to show the marked influence of John Coltrane. Young then became a part of some of the earliest fusion groups: first on Emergency! with the Tony Williams Lifetime (with Tony Williams and John McLaughlin) and also on Miles Davis’s Bitches Brew. Young Blues was Young’s second album as a leader
