A big fan of Mr Auger especially the 1970 album Befour, which mostly consists of covers but they're GREAT covers.

Keith Emerson is on record as stating he believes Auger to be the best British jazz organist to date. (praise indeed)

One of my favourite singles of all time is 'Tiger' (where Auger's Hammond glissando imitates a punning growl to thrilling effect)

He also did a version of Cream's 'Rope Ladder to the Moon' with Julie Driscoll which causes my fur to bristle agreeably.

A bit off topic but another great UK organist from that period (and a big influence on Keith Emerson) is Don Shinn:

I'm a big Brian Auger fan.  I've seen him a couple of times and he never fails to impress. Check Brian out on this video:
