Vik, 1957. Used ... $16.99
Jazz-meets-Broadway session, in the typical RCA vein from this period. Elliot Lawrence, Al Cohn, and Manny Albam did the arrangements, and the group's got the usual suspects – Cohn, Sims, Gene Quill, etc – playing in tight ensemble format. Titles include "Just In Time", ... read more CD

Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $13.99
A mainstream jazz combo, but one with plenty of modern edges too – thanks to the skills of the players in the sextet!

Six (Bob Wilber)View From Jazzbo's Head ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1956. New Copy ... $13.99
A tightly swinging set of tracks dedicated to Al Jazzbo Collins – the famous jazz DJ of the 50s! Collins has little to do with the set – save for his image on the front cover – and the group's mostly a swing-based ensemble, grooving in a style that's similar to other mid 50s ... read more CD

One of our favorite sides of the British avant scene in the 70s – a body of work that's out, but never too out – soaring on spiritual wings one moment, and working in playful blocks of sound the next!

Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $4.99
Sessions like this are proof that Jimmy was one of the most fantastic organ players ever – as his work with large arrangements (supplied here by Claus Ogerman) always seems to groove better than his work with small combos. His sound is impeccable, and he soars ahead of the rest of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1962. Used ... $11.99
One of Jimmy Smith's biggest albums of the 60s – and a classic Verve pairing of his lean Hammond organ solos with the fuller, hard-swinging arrangements of Oliver Nelson! Nelson is working here at the height of his powers – backing Smith with a large group, but in a way that only seems ... read more CD

New Jimmy SmithGot My Mojo Workin' ... LP
Verve, 1965. Very Good Gatefold ... $3.99
Although he was the consummate high-class hipster at the start of his career, for some reason Jimmy Smith seemed to hit a forced sort of rootsy style about halfway through his years at Verve. The style worked well for him, even if it sometimes languished in bluesy tones that seemed a bit forced ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A rare gem from Jimmy – a great set of organ tracks backed by some solid soul arrangements by the great Johnny Pate!

Blue Note (Japan), Late 50s. Used ... $14.99
Like all of Jimmy's late 50s live sets, this is a killer, and features wild weird grooves, strangely played solos, and the kind of genius playing that makes you understand why Blue Note went so wild over Jimmy in the first place, and recorded him as much as they did. The tracks are standards ... read more CD

A real stormer from Jimmy Smith – done in his first year at Blue Note, but with a sense of power and imagination that cannot be denied!

The other side of Jimmy Smith is a mellow side – as this album's nearly all ballads and standards, set to moody late night orchestrations by Johnny Pate.

A real sleeper – but a great gem from Johnny Hammond!
