Organist Larry Young (1940-1978).

Larry Young gained fame in the 60s with his "Unity" LP, on which he managed to combine the depth and complexity of musicians like John Coltrane with the gravelly ‘night club sound’ of the Hammond organ. Towards the end of the 60s, he went on to look for a different path: electrically amplified jazz rock.
