Gene Ludwig: Soul Serenade by AAJ Staff, published on March 1, 2001. Ludwig's 1998 Back On The Track is aptly named, for he started once again to record after years of silence beyond his hometown, one of the important stops on the organ circuit of the sixties. Now, with Soul Serenade, Ludwig is on track again with Loose Leaf Music, expressing the feelings accumulated over forty years of musical experience. Please Send Me Someone To Love" recollects the 6/8 doo-wap.

Ludwig is no newcomer to the scene, having been performing since the 1960s; he got a big break in 1969 when he recorded with Sonny Stitt and another break when he toured with singer Arthur Prysock. Ludwig has listened to all the great practitioners of the Hammond B3, from the blues/soul promenading of Jimmy Smith to the swinging organs of Bill Doggett and Wild Bill Davis. These listening experiences are reflected on this album as he pulls out all the stops, literally and figuratively, in running through a variety of musical styles.
This CD shows organist Gene Ludwig's unabashed love for soul and blues pure and simple, which is not surprising since he is a native of that area of Pennsylvania which spawned so many of the giants of jazz and blues. He and guitarist Tony Janflone Sr. team up on "At Last," laying on a melancholy, whimsical sound unique to an organ/guitar combination.
