An incredible record by Jimmy Smith – unlike anything we've ever heard from him! The session is a rare French soundtrack one – recorded in 1965, in a setting that was quite different than any of Jimmy's American sessions from the same time. According to the notes, Smith was just shown the film, and given free reign to improvise as needed. The result is a set of tracks that at times almost resembles Larry Young's work more than it does any of Smith's sides for Blue Note or Verve – moody and atmospheric tracks that still swing nicely, but have a strong degree of freedom. Rhythm is by Quentin Warren on guitar and Billy Hart on drums – and titles include "Love Theme", "Generique", "Blues Pour Alphonse", "Melodie Pour Catherine", and "Angoisse/Race Track Blues". CD also features 5 bonus tracks from Verve albums of the time, mostly soundtrack related, and including "Man With The Golden Arm", "Any Number Can Win", "Mission Impossible", and "Goldfinger".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
