This is one from the time before the sound of the Hammond organ gave way to electronic keyboards.

Viva Tirado by the group El Chicano was released in 1970 and prompted my fascination with the Hammond organ.

Although El Chicano were categorized as a jazz group their sound crossed over into Pop, Latino and R&B circles.



This is a live performance from 2010.


The original recording was done at the Kabuki Sukiyaki Restaurant at Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles in 1970.

My post was originally intended for the section 'What are you listening to', @Glenn.
If it's not to your taste maybe the moderators can move it elsewhere... ;-)
No, I was just listening to it. Pretty cool stuff, kind of has a Santana vibe to it. I like the Hammond organ as well. A pretty versatile instrument, played by the likes of Keith Emerson, and John Lord... and of course Santana among others.

Glenn and TC: This was one of the best musical interludes (and a conversation about music) that I've ever heard. I started playing an upright in high school and then in a community band for awhile. I also have a used electric I tool around with occasionally. Thanks SO much for sharing all this. It was a real pleasure.

P.S. Glenn, you did a really good job with the sound. Sounds just like an upright.
