Larry Young (1940-1979) started off in the early 60s as a soul-jazz organist, and the three albums included on this 2-CD set Testifying, Young Blues, and Street Groove , are his first as a leader. Recorded in 1960 and 1962 for the New Jazz/Prestige label, they document a period when the 20 year-old organist was starting to establish a name for himself in the jazz scene. On a set of warmly swinging, thoroughly grooving performances, Young is in an astounding, persuasively blues-tinged mood, while guitarist Thornel Schwartz and drummer Jimmie Smith are the personification of steady and sympathetic support, consistently augmented with the addition of bassist Wendell Marshall in Young Blues . Tenor saxophonist Joe Holiday can be heard on two of the tunes of Testifying , while Bill Leslie sets the right mood for Groove Street. As a bonus, this set includes five tracks from Forrest Fire , another 1960 record date with Young and his trio act as backing for the solid blowing of the full-bodied tenor of Jimmy Forrest. These sessions, relaxed and unpretentious, are the epitome of swing-rooted, soulful jazz.
