Cherry Wainer, Kickass Hammond Organ Gal
I discovered Cherry Wainer recently and what can I say, this stuff is odd. But then aren't all Hammond organ soloists a little odd? I mean even Jimmy Smith - by far the coolest Hammond organ soloist ever - was a bit strange. It has something to do with organs, I think.
Anyway, Cherry is a very capable organist, as you can see here with this fine rendition of "A Taste of Honey," but even more than that, she's got irresistible showmanship, and... she can speak German! Cherry Wainer, thank you for being such a kickass Hammond Organ Gal.
