Charles Kynard - Reelin' With The Feelin' 1969 (Prestige)
Charles Kynard - Wa-Tu-Wa-Zui (Beautiful People) 1971(Prestige)
Label : Prestige
Great twofer of 2 fine Kynard releases, "Reelin With The Feelin' "(Charles Kynard organ, Wilton Felder tenor, Joe Pass guitar,Carol Kaye bass, Paul Humphrey Drums) & "Wa-Tu-Wa-Zui" (Charles Kynard organ, Rusty Bryant tenor, Virgil Jones trumpet, Melvin Sparks guitar, Jimmy Lewis bass, Idris Muhammad & Bernard Purdie drums) Reelin may be Kynards most well known release, probably is my favorite or up there with "Soul Brotherhood", & "Your Mama Don't Dance" but the reality is Kynard NEVER released a klunker- Reelin has a unique sound partly due to the up-front Fender bass driving by Carol Kaye. Having electric bass always adds a different punch that pedal organists can lack. The one standard on "Wa Tu Wa Zui" where Kynard does a simply killer job is George Harrisons "Something", which may be finest track on the record. Bernard Purdie takes the drum chair and pushes the whole band to tear and Kynard has never played better.This a must hear piece of B-3 heaven, wall shaking or subtlity I find Kynard always keeping my interest with variety.
