Omitted Larry Young LP's from your listing
I like your site. It's pays tribute to the great invention of the Hammond Organ/Leslie Speaker in the hands of super talented artists. Artists who, over the decades, invented, innovated and created some of the deepest Jazz to ever be played... and thankfully in many instances, RECORDED.
This brings me to the purpose of this letter. Larry Young was IMHO, the most profound and advanced of the great originators. Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff, John Patton, Lonnie Smith and Groove Holmes were the most recorded and made monumental contributions. Larry Young stands apart among this group and fortunately his output on Blue Note Records is a testament to his genius. You have omitted two great releases on Blue Note. "Contrasts" and "Heaven On Earth". Both released under his name and with his choice of artists. Definitely, two of the finest offerings by Larry Young and any Jazz organist... ever.
Thank you and keep up the good work.
Best to you,
