Trudy Pitts may hail from Philadelphia, the Hammond B-3 capitol of the universe, but she doesn't sound like any other organ player on the planet. A classically trained pianist with a B.A. from Juilliard, Pitts brought to the B-3 an array of warm and often sinewy timbres more akin to the church pipe organ she played as a girl than to the shrill tones produced by her inner-city cocktail lounge contemporaries. These two 1967 sessions do, however, have a pronounced Sixties lounge feel, right down to the choice of such cover material as the Herb Alpert hit "Spanish Flea" ("The Dating Game" theme) and Procol Harum's "A Whiter Shade of Pale." Pitts is joined by her regular sidemen of the period--husband Bill Carney on drums and the always astonishing Pat Martino on guitar.
with Bill Carney, Abdu Johnson
Recorded February 1967 and September 1967.
