Jimmy McGriff - The Mean Machine


CD $19.87


The Mean Machine is a studio album by American jazz organist Jimmy McGriff, released in 1976. Arranged by Brad Baker (Peaches & Herb, Gloria Gaynor, Talking Heads), the laid-back drum grooves and grandiose string lines evoke comparisons to Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes. McGriff has collaborated with Buddy Rich, Junior Parker, Frank Wess (Count Basie), David "Fathead" Newman, and many more.
