House Party

LP (Item 6438) Blue Note, Late 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

One of the best hard-wailing all-star sessions that Jimmy did so well for Blue Note! The album features an amazing array of top-line players – like Tina Brooks, Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Lou Donaldson, Art Blakey, and Kenny Burrell – and they all play with Smith in differing combinations, all of which have an open-ended groove that sounds very nice, and very much like the kind of material that Smith would have laid down at some small club in the late 50s. Titles include "Blues After All", "Au Private", and "Lover Man". (80s DMM pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cat Strikes Again
Inner City, 1981. Very Good+
An obscure later album by Jimmy Smith – but one that continues the trend of tighter jazz funk that he began in the 70s! The album's a tight studio session with Jimmy on the "Wersi Saturn W3T" organ, plus guitar by Howard Roberts and Dennis Budimir, piano by Ronnie Foster, trumpet ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Note, Late 50s. Good+
Like all of Jimmy's late 50s live sets, this is a killer, and features wild weird grooves, strangely played solos, and the kind of genius playing that makes you understand why Blue Note went so wild over Jimmy in the first place, and recorded him as much as they did. The tracks are mostly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prayer Meetin'
Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good
Jimmy Smith and Stanley Turrentine go head to head in a great little set for Blue Note – spare quartet grooving, with lots of room for soulful solos! Turrentine's simply great at this point – playing with a raspy edge on the bottom of his tone, sounding dark and mysterious – not ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bluesmith
Verve, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
One of the hippest Jimmy Smith albums of the early 70s – a lean and mean, down and dirty, back to basics session for Verve – one that's got plenty of grit in the grooves! L:ike the Root Down album, this set is recorded live with a very stretched out feel – tracks that take Jimmy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sounds Of Jimmy Smith
Blue Note, 1957. Very Good
Early work from Jimmy Smith – raw Hammond grooves from some of the first few years of the organ's use in jazz! Jimmy's working here in trio formation – shifting between bop and ballad modes with a trio that includes Eddie McFadden on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums (Art Blakey makes ...

Organ Grinder Swing
Verve, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold
No hokey organ grinder here – no monkey on a leash, begging for change on a street corner – just a smoking little trio session that stands as one of the best records that Jimmy Smith ever recorded for Verve! The album's got a groove that's similar to Jimmy's early years at Blue Note ... LP, Vinyl record album

Man Incognito
Blue Note, 1975. Sealed
A monstrous bit of jazz funk from drummer Alphonse Mouzon – spacey tracks in a choppy style that reminds us a bit of some of the best European fusion albums from the period, but with a harder groove overall! Mini Moog and ARP trip out the sound throughout, but the underlying rhythms are nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
