Listen: It's "Taxman" Jazz Style on the Hammond C-2 Organ!

George Harrison of the Beatles really hated forking over his hard-earned cash to the taxman—so much so, that he penned this anthem against the British tax men. It ended up a huge hit on the iconic album Revolver.If you're feeling equally annoyed this tax season, check out this video for a little musical reprieve. It's a soulful jazz/funk version of "Taxman" from the band Organissimo with Jim Alfredson on Hammond C-2 organ; Larry Barris on Heritage LB1 guitar; Randy Marsh on drums.
