Hammond goes Texas! Scorch, influenced by Booker T., J. Geils and Jimmy Smith (from whom he took lessons), presents an album, which demonstrates his energizing style of playing the B3. A bit Philly sound, a bit Blues, a touch of rock, all that leads to an impulsive mixture of music - should we call it the Texan style? Whatever it is, Eric Scortia enriches the American Hammond organ scene.

Both Eric's Armadillo stew and his music are excellent.
