Lou Bennett began being a bop pianist, then switched to body organ and became a good participant in the later ’50s. With Jimmy Smith’s virtuostic approach as motivation, Bennett still left piano behind in 1956, and toured the East and Midwest along with his body organ trio from 1957 through 1959. Bennett still left America for Paris in 1960. He documented there, played on the city’s Blue Take note membership with Jimmy Gourley and fellow expatriate Kenny Clarke, who became one of is own regulars alongside Rene Thomas. Bennett produced only one come back stop by at America, appearing on the 1964 Newport Jazz Celebration. He led his very own group through the ’80s.
