Amazing Jimmy Smith Trio – Live At The Village Gate

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

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 rivals his early live dates for Blue Note! The group's a stripped down trio – with Quentin Warren on guitar and Billy Hart on drums – and tracks are all nice and long, with plenty of room for Smith to really get things screaming on the Hammond – often with sharper changes and fiercer notes than you'll hear on his more polished Verve studio sides of the time. Titles include "The Champ", "If I Were A Bell", "I Got A Woman", and "Won't You Come Home Bill Bailey". (Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The rest of the lineup's great, too, because James Moody is all over the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1973. Very Good+
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones!
