What do u call blues music that uses the organ? I’m trying to classify blues music that uses the organ as a background sound, synthesized.

The first name that comes to mind is Jimmy Smith. Although much of his music was heavily blues influenced, it was always considered Jazz. youtube.com/watch?v=Xc1OK1eTH60&feature=relatedSince Jazz is a direct descendant of the Blues, the similarities are quite apparent in the repertoire of many Jazz artists.

In blues, use of the organ is not unknown. My brother Martin notes jazz great Jimmy Smith and nails the information as usual. The organist I associate most with the blues is Sid Winfield, who played with Luther Allison for years before Luther fled to Europe. (Sometimes he’s erroneously confused with Pete Wingfield and publications spell it “Sid Wingfield”.) Sid resurfaced with the blues/soul outfit Big Twist & The Mellow Fellows, now called The Chicago Rhythm & Blues Kings. Sid plays a Hammond B3 with a Leslie Speaker. I never saw him use anything but that in performance, into the late 80s before Big Twist died.You can see Sid having fun on the B3 in this live clip of Big Twist.youtube.com/watch?v=jeuHWGqj_GA&feature=PlayList&p=A70B52C28F1A5D1E&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=56Gregg Allman can’t play his way out of a wet paper bag, as evidenced by the video. Why else did the Allmans hire Chuck Leavell? One reason must be is so many people think it’s Gregg playing the piano on “Jessica” when in fact it’s Chuck. Gregg’s strengths are composing and singing. I’ve seen Gregg perform live twice: the first time during the Eat A Peach tour and the second as a big band solo act. The first show, he played rudimentary chords as Dickey Betts played guitar solos. The second time former Wet Willie frontman Jimmy Hall stole the show by performing “Keep On Smilin”. I went to the Eat A Peach concert because Freddie King was opening. His organist, Duke Jethro of Mississippi, far outshone Gregg.

Warren was #23 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s Top 100 Guitar Players of all time. Dickie was #70+ something. Warren is perhaps the best guitarist alive today. He fronts both The Allman Brothers Band and Gov’t Mule and toured with with The Dead as lead guitarist in 2008. Warren is, hands down, the better guitarist.

Both are good, but Dickey gets my vote because of “Jessica”. Great!

I was never a big fan of Dickie Betts, but I’m a huge fan of ABB. I prefer the Warren Haynes/Derek Trucks, current era. “Rocking Horse” and “Desdemona” are my favorites. The best versions are available on The Live at The Beacon Theater DVD. Great stuff for sure!
