Mike Carr
You could say, Mike is one of these insiders' tips: an excellent organ player but - why ever - never gained this world wide reputation he should have.
Born 1937, Mike toured as member of the Emcee Five playing the piano and vibes. From 1966 he was a steady guest in Ronnie Scott's club in London. Ronnie says, "he's one of the best jazz organists I know and it was a ball playing alongside him". He has his own ensembles and works also accompanying famous soloists.
Michael died in September 2017.
