The day after the election, Marc Myers of Jazz Wax wrote a post fittingly called Music for the Day After, featuring wonderful organ-heavy tracks. We followed his lead, and after reviewing some of our own favorite jazz organ albums, are now highlighting Brother Jack McDuff's 1966 Atlantic release, A Change Is Gonna Come (which always seems true after an election). The cover photo of a suave-looking McDuff was taken by Charles Varon, who created images for Della Reese and Lou Levy as well. The cover design comes courtesy of Loring Eutemey, whose seemingly simple riff on the Rising Sun motif is nevertheless eye-catching and beautiful. Eutemey has too many amazing album design credits to his name, but you can find more about him in our previous post on Ornette Coleman's Free Jazz album. Enjoy the album cover, and check out Marc Myer's post here: http://www.jazzwax.com/2016/11/music-for-the-day-after.html
The title track of A Change is Gonna Come is always worth a listen, but you don't want to miss McDuff's own composition at the end of the album either. For your listening pleasure then, you can find Can't Find the Keyhole Blues below.
