Ahh, that sound. That glorious sound. Staccato attacks stabbing through the horn section. Sorrowful wailings that breathe against the beat. Electrifying glissandos pumping up the blood pressure, ushering in the climax. There are organs, and then there is the organ. The Hammond organ. But not just any Hammond organ. I'm talking about a tonewheel Hammond, obviously with an experienced skipper at the helm. And don't forget the Leslie cabinet....."
