Charles Kynard • Your Mama Don't Dance

Dusty Groove Review
Funky organ and plenty of vamping -- a really tight little set from the mighty Charles Kynard -- who's working here with a really wide-ranging command of the keyboard! As with some of the other Mainstream Records sessions of the time, the backings here are somewhat full -- arranged and conducted by Richard Fritz with a style that's almost soundtrack funk at points, but which still has a more jazzy feel overall -- thanks to the space given to Kynard's organ solos, and to backings from players who include George Bohannon on trombone, Arthur Adams on guitar, and Paul Humphrey on drums. The set features a surprising cover of Joe Quarterman's classic "I Got So Much Trouble On My Mind" -- one that's almost as funky as the vocal original -- plus "The World Is A Ghetto", "Superstition", "Zambezi", "Summer Breeze", "Momma Jive", and "You've Got It Bad Girl".

One of the key figures in the early NZ Rock & Roll scene. Claude Papesch was a blind keyboardist from New Plymouth who was equally at home in jazz, rock & roll and pop. He also produced records.
He moved to Australia in the 1960s where he recorded two albums and appeared on countless sessions.
In later years he was a local politician of some note in New South Wales.
Claude Papesch died in 1987 aged just 45.
