JIMMY MCGRIFF

James Harrell McGriff (April 3, 1936 – May 24, 2008)[1] was an American hard bop and soul-jazz organist and organ trio bandleader.

During this time, McGriff performed at clubs and concert halls worldwide. He settled in Newark, New Jersey, and eventually opened his own supper club, The Golden Slipper – where he recorded Black Pearl and another live album, Chicken Fried Soul with Junior Parker in 1971. Beginning in 1969, he also performed regularly with Buddy Rich’s band, though the two were only recorded once together in 1974 on The Last Blues Album Volume 1.
