4.50 5

A later album by Jimmy – recorded in a smooth slick jazz funk mode, a bit like the style that Jimmy Smith used on some of his Mercury recordings. The organ of Jimmy is augmented by keyboards played by Pat Rebillot and Paul Griffin – which makes for a nice mix of organ and electric piano sounds, plus some occasional moog that's very nicely placed! If you're not looking for full out funk, this is actually a great little album – with some wonderful little steppers that come across in a cool mellow jazz funk way. Titles include "Flexible Flyer", "Sky Hawk", "Grandma's Toe Jam", and "Bullfrog". (Cover has a cutout notch.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ 2 LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power!

Coldwater Flat
Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
A brilliant pairing of the Three Sounds trio with the larger arrangements of reedman Oliver Nelson – easily one of the most soulful bandleaders of the 60s, and a talent who really helps open up the trio's groove! The piano of Gene Harris is nice and sharp – played with a soulful sock ... LP, Vinyl record album
