The Lyman Woodard Organization • Saturday Night Special



Lyman Woodard (March 3, 1942 – February 25, 2009) was a Detroit-based jazz organist noted for fusing his music with Latin and Afro-Cuban-inspired rhythms. From the late 1960s, Woodard recorded with a number of Motown acts, and served as musical director for Martha and the Vandellas. But releases – such as his 1975 Saturday Night Special – and the legacy of his namesake outfit, the Lyman Woodard Organization, helped define Motor City's lesser-known jazz-funk heritage.
Before establishing the Lyman Woodard Organization, he comprised a jazz trio with drummer Melvin Davis and guitarist Dennis Coffey; the ensemble made its reputation playing numerous shows at a nightclub called Cobb's Corner. In 1968, Woodard and Melvin Davis recorded the album Hair And Thangs with Dennis Coffey. Although the album was released as a solo project by Dennis Coffey in 1969, a single containing "It's Your Thing" ("It's Your Thang" on the LP) and "River Rouge" was released with the artist(s) as "Dennis Coffey and the Lyman Woodard Trio". In 1979, Woodard returned to Cobb's Corner with the Organization to record Don't Stop the Groove, for the Corridor label. The 1987 recording, Dedicacion, featured violinist Regina Carter.

Desde finales de la década de 1960, Woodard grabó con varios actos de Motown y fue director musical de Martha and the Vandellas. Pero los lanzamientos, como su especial Saturday Night Special de 1975, y el legado de su equipo homónimo, la Organización Lyman Woodard, ayudaron a definir la menos conocida herencia de jazz-funk de Motor City.Antes de establecer la Organización Lyman Woodard, formó un trío de jazz con el baterista Melvin Davis y el guitarrista Dennis Coffey; El conjunto hizo su reputación tocando numerosos espectáculos en un club nocturno llamado Cobb's Corner.
