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 ...

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

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

Modern Art
United Artists, 1958. Good
A seminal session as a leader by the young Art Farmer – recorded for United Artists, and a great set of tight lyrical tunes, played by Farmer in his sparkling style – in a group along with Benny Golson on tenor and Bill Evans on piano. Evans is a special treat here, as the 1958 session ... LP, Vinyl record album
