Eddy Louiss, a French musician who started as a pianist in the early ’60s, absorbed the influence of American jazz legends like Bud Powell, delved into modern jazz with European peers like Daniel Humair, and later focused on playing the Hammond organ. His mastery of bebop sets him apart in the world of soul jazz organists. Born in Paris to a French mother and a Martinican father, Louiss had a diverse musical upbringing, exposed to exotic rhythms and styles through his father’s band. His collaboration with Stan Getz in the early ’70s gained him recognition, and his association with guitarist René Thomas and legendary drummer Kenny Clarke resulted in the exceptional 1968 album “Eddy Louiss Trio.” The album features hard-driving organ jazz, with notable tracks like “No Smoking” and “You’ve Changed” showcasing the contrasting styles of Louiss and Thomas.
