In the late 1950s, Jimmy Smith recorded a seemingly endless number of sessions for Blue Note, the label that brought him to worldwide attention. Many of the subsequently released albums were culled from tracks recorded at various sessions with a wide range of sidemen. Arguably, one of the most successful of these conglomerations is the exceptional HOUSE PARTY.
Smith was at the height of his popularity, defining a style that would be monstrously influential to all who would come after him. Here he leads the rather large ensemble through a set of mostly standards; the two Charlie Parker-composed favorites, "Au Privave" and "Confirmation" are a couple of the most charged-up statements of these enduring works. Throughout, Smith churns and burns with the phenomenal energy and dexterity that made him a household word in the jazz world. For hard bop fans, this is a Jimmy Smith collection that demands attention.
