The master of the Hammond B-3 tickles the keys in full holiday mode on CHRISTMAS '64. While not nearly as gritty as BACK AT THE CHICKEN SHACK or THE SERMON, this seasonal platter finds Jimmy Smith lending his swirling, steamy organ sound to renditions of, among other favorites, "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." Compared to most Christmas albums, this is plenty groovy, with lots of Smith's trademark dexterity and bop runs on offer.
