Short intro

BILLY HAWKS : organ, harmonica, vocal JOSEPH JONES : guitar HENRY TERRELL : drums. Billy Hawks played the organ and sang the blues - a combination that in the late '60s, when Hawks recorded and released The New Genius of the Blues and More Heavy Soul for Prestige, meant that he was most certainly a practitioner of soul-jazz. Working in a similar vein to Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, and other funky professors of the Hammond organ, Hawks didn't play straight-up jazz on either of his Prestige LPs, here captured on a single-disc 2014 reissue by Ace.
