Hammond Organ virtuoso Lachy Doley – who honed his craft as a session player with Powderfinger, Jimmy Barnes, Glenn Hughes and more – celebrates his tenth anniversary as a solo artist with the release of this new album, which includes eight remastered versions of songs from previous releases and two mind-blowing covers.
His re-arrangement of Jimi Hendrix’s Voodoo Child provides a showcase for the rare Whammy Clavinet, an attachment to the Hammond Organ that sounds eerily like a wailing, screaming guitar. (Watch the fascinating video below!)
What’s equally impressive is the cover of the Spencer Davis Group hit Gimme Some Lovin; rather than copy Steve Winwood’s R&B feel on the original recording, Lachy channels Brian Auger for this jazzy reinvention.
Double Figures by Lachy Doley is out now via Only Blues.
