Jimmy SmithOrgan Grinder Swing ... LP
Verve, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Jimmy SmithPrayer Meetin' ... LP
Blue Note, Early 60s. Near Mint- ... $9.99
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 ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithRespect ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good Gatefold ... $5.99
Mad respect for Jimmy Smith – a cool small group record that's different than some of his bigger-concept, larger arrangement records for Verve! The groove here is tight and right on the money – and the tracks are a bit longer than other Verve sessions too – as the master really ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has staining along the bottom seam, marker inside the gatefold, a strip of tape on the top seam, and some wear.)

Jimmy SmithStay Loose – Jimmy Smith Sings Again ... LP
Verve, 1968. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A really unusual little record for Jimmy Smith – and a set that actually features a bit of singing alongside his usual work on the Hammond! The set's got a punched-up style that's very much in the best groovy Verve 60s mode – as Jimmy works with some lively arrangements from the great ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy SmithWho's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? ... LP
Verve, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
A real treasure, and a record that may well be our favorite Jimmy Smith album for Verve – a masterful meeting of his smoking Hammond work with some swingingly sophisticated arrangements by Oliver Nelson and Claus Ogerman! Both Nelson and Ogerman bring a fuller spectrum of horn work to the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Hammond SmithSoul Talk ... LP
Prestige, 1969. Very Good ... $19.99
A sweetly funky set from Johnny Hammond Smith – a date done right at the start of the jazz funk era on Prestige – and one that marks a nicely heavy change in Johnny's sound! The format here is quite different than the style of Smith's early 60s work – with Hammond that's much ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Blue label pressing.)

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Johnny Hammond SmithStimulation ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good ... $9.99
A great lost groover on Prestige – and an album that puts the soulful organ of Johnny Hammond Smith into contact with the groovy vibes of Freddie McCoy – one of the label's best under-reissued players! The tracks have a nice raw soul jazz sound – and the combination of vibes and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny SmithSound Of The Johnny Smith Guitar ... LP
Roost, 1960. Very Good ... $11.99
The Johnny Smith sound is a wonderful one – not just the sound that he makes with his groundbreaking work on the strings of the guitar, but also the way he records the instrument – which set a new standard in jazz guitar albums, and also helped pave the way for countless generations to ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lonnie Liston SmithReflections Of A Golden Dream ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $19.99
Lonnie Liston Smith grooves it hard here with his Cosmic Echoes group – mixing in a stronger dose of soul than ever before, yet still giving tracks a righteous feel overall! The approach here is a bit like that of Roy Ayers work from the 70s – still jazzy at its core and conception, ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesCosmic Funk ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1974. Very Good Gatefold ... $14.99
A real gem from Lonnie Liston Smith's early years in the studio – and a record that's perhaps a bit more "cosmic" than it is "funk" – but that's why we like it so much! The session has Lonnie stretching out a bit more than usual – borrowing some of the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic EchoesVisions Of A New World ... LP
Flying Dutchman, 1975. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
Lonnie Liston Smith is really tightening up his groove on this one – bringing a bit more funk into the mix, and creating that amazingly sweet glide in his keyboard sound! The record's still steeped in the righteous influences of years past, but it brings the message out to a bigger audience ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Original pressing. Cover has light wear.)

Lonnie SmithKeep On Lovin' ... LP
Groove Merchant, 1976. Very Good- Gatefold ... $5.99
Lonnie Smith's a long way from his Blue Note years here – but the sound is still plenty darn great, thanks to some fuller arrangements from the great Brad Baker – of B Baker Chocolate Company fame! The whole thing's quite electric – with Lonnie on Fender Rhodes and other ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has some wear.)

Louis SmithSmithville ... LP
Blue Note, 1957. Very Good+ ... $24.99
A really hard-edged set from trumpeter Louis Smith – one of his only two albums as a leader from the early years, and a heck of a great little album, thanks to tenor work by Charlie Rouse! Rouse is blowing beautifully here in one of his classic pre-Monk appearances – recorded at a time ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing on Toshiba-EMI.)

Marvin Smitty SmithKeeper Of The Drums ... LP
Concord, 1987. Near Mint- ... $2.99
A wonderful record – one you might pass up easily, but not to be missed – as it's one of our straight jazz treasures of the 80s! The album's mostly straight ahead hardbop – recorded with a largeish group that includes Robin Eubanks on trombone, Steve Coleman on saxes, Mulgrew ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Smith TrioSaratoga ... LP
Imperial, 1959. Very Good- ... $1.99
A rare set from pianist Paul Smith – recorded after his classic 50s work on Capitol, and with a much more open-ended feel! The set features work written for the musical Saratoga – but Smith and his trio perform the tunes with a really fluid (liquid?) sort of approach – one that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
