After a long and successful stint at Verve/MGM, Jimmy retreated to the underground during the mid/late 70s, where he put out a few hard to find releases on smaller labels. This is one of them, issued on his own tiny Mojo label – and it features a relatively straight soul jazz organ set, played with a trio that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar and Grady Tate on drums. Titles include "Yesterday I Heard The Rain", "Well, You Needn't", "Reunion", "Second Coming", and "It's All Right With Me".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Metro/Verve, 1963. Very Good
A lost bit of work from Jimmy Smith – and one of his most hard-edged sessions from the Verve years! The set was recorded live at the Village Gate in 1963, but was unissued for a number of years – and it features Jimmy really stretching out on the Hammond, almost with an intensity that ...

Blue Note/Sunset, Late 50s. Very Good-
Early Jimmy Smith work for Blue Note – packaged together here as a "standards" collection and issued on Liberty's Sunset label in the late 60s! The collection offers little in the way of session details – clearly an attempt to pass it off as new material – but it does ... LP, Vinyl record album

It's Necessary
Mercury, 1977. Very Good
One of Jimmy's last albums for a major label in the 70s – a real back-to-basics set that was recorded live at the Jimmy Smith Supper Club in LA – the "home of fried cornbread and live jazz", and a venue that we certainly wish we could have visited! Jimmy's working here with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bucket
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good+
One of the last Jimmy Smith albums for Blue Note, and a tasty trio session that features Quentin Warren on guitar and Donald Baily on drums. The tracks are short, but very groovy – with a tighter sound than on some of Smith's other Blue Note trio albums, and the same kind of in-the-pocket ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, 1956. Good+
A new star is right – because with the strength of this set, Jimmy Smith set a whole new tone for the way that the organ was used in jazz! The album's got a raw, earthy power that grabs us right away – and even though the tunes themselves are mostly familiar numbers, Jimmy's early ... LP, Vinyl record album

Big Band Bossa Nova
Mercury, Mid 60s. Good+
Perhaps THE greatest Quincy Jones album of the 60s – a hard-swinging batch of big band bossa tunes – and one of the greatest American takes on the bossa sound ever! Quincy really brings a lot of soul to the set – syncopating the bottom end of the tunes to really bring out the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maiden Voyage
Blue Note, 1965. Very Good+
A brilliant album – and real turning point for Herbie Hancock! After first coming onto the scene as the soul jazz hero between Blue Note funky classics like "Watermelon Man" or "Blind Man, Blind Man" – Herbie emerges here as a concerned modernist with a strand of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Revelation
Black Jazz, 1973. Good
The Black Jazz recordings of Doug Carn are always a revelation – some of the most powerful, progressive work on the American underground of the early 70s – music that got Carn into way more record collections than you might expect! The sound here is a perfect summation of Doug's early ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freedom Sound
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Good+
Sublime early soul jazz from the Jazz Crusaders – a seminal set that really has the group taking off right away! The use of "freedom" in the title is well placed – as the set definitely shows the players stretching out a bit on their solos – hinting at the magic that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tough Tenors
Jazzland, 1960. Good+
Another one of the great Griffin/Davis collaborations from the early 60's, and a tight bit of work with the added appearance of Junior Mance on piano. The two of them manage to ride a groove that straddles the hardbop and soul jazz camps, and they groove along nicely, with well delivered solos ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boss Men
Prestige, 1966. Good+
Nice cooker from Don, featuring a trio with Sonny Stitt on alto and Billy James on drums. The groove is that nice open-ended gutbucket style that Patterson was bringing to his Prestige sides of the time. There's rootsy soul jazz, but also a bit more freewheelingness than you'd expect – ... LP, Vinyl record album
