Wynder K. Frog • Out Of The Frying Pan

Originally released in 1968, this is the definitive album from Mr Frog, a.k.a. MickWeaver, described as 'Bolton's answer to BOOKER T.' Jazz-rock organ sounds from the late 60s by this UK band, now much beloved of zoot-suited Mods everywhere.
Mick Weaver - a.k.a. Wynder K. Frog: Keyboardist, appearing on lots of albums by fringe-of-the-blues-musicians of this period: Miller Anderson, The Grease Band, Juicy Lucy, The Butts Band, Keef Hartley, Eric Burdon... Also appeared in constellation of Mason, Wood, Capaldi & Frog, i.e. Dave Mason, Chris Wood and Jim Capaldi, all ex-Traffic. The instrumental Wynder K. Frog albums were recorded in the solid company of Dick Heckstall-Smith, Neil Hubbard, Chris Mercer, Alan Spenner...
"Music just cannot swing and groove any more than this. It is pure, vintage soul/jazz, in particular the Bobby Timmons tune, "This Here". Wynder himself leads the band on organ, and the LP includes some hot versions (of) "Jumping Jack Flash", "Green Door", and "The House That Jack Built".
