Nat Adderley Work Song (Organ And Vocal)
Testing out my iRig 2 audio interface from IK Multimedia with my Korg SV-1 on an organ sound. The microphone is a VPS-80 from American Audio. All three can be viewed and purchased here and the tune is Nat Adderly's Work Song.
Work Song is an album by jazz cornetist Nat Adderley, recorded in January 1960 and released on the Riverside label. It features Adderley with Bobby Timmons, Wes Montgomery, Sam Jones, Percy Heath, Keter Betts and Louis Hayes in various combinations from a trio to a sextet, with the unusual sound of pizzicato cello to the fore on some tracks. The title tune was given lyrics and covered the following year by Oscar Brown Jr. on his album Sin And Soul...and then some and has become a standard in both vocal and instrumental forms. It has also been covered in French by Claude Nougaro as "Sing Sing song".
