Papa George

Papa George

Nothing says fornication-time like a Hammond B-3. Sure, Barry White’s voice might do the trick for some, but organs are just plain sleazier. So whenever the mood strikes, be sure to put on the Nick Moran Trio’s latest, The Messenger, in the background. The disc starts with a lively tune called “Papa George.” Here the organ slinks around in a too-sophisticated-for-a-porn-soundtrack fashion, showing off Ed Withrington’s magic touch on the keyboard. Bandleader Nick Moran weaves some interesting melodic lines while drummer Andy Watson sets the pace. Happy listening.
