Billy Martin / Wil Blades

Billy Martin / Wil Blades - Shimmy

Billy Martin and Wil Blades wanna make you Shimmy. On their debut recording, the organ/drums duo waste no time getting right down to it. They go old school in the tradition of those essential organ-groove sides by the likes of Charles Earland, Brother Jack McDuff and Groove Holmes.

The electricity between Martin, the drummer for the legendary Medeski, Martin & Wood, and Blades, a much buzzed about young organist from the San Francisco live music scene, runs high voltage through tunes like 'Brother Bru,' 'Toe Thumb' and 'Les & Eddie.'
