When you talk about the Hammond Organ, you have to say, "Before, or after, Jimmy Smith?"
For nearly 5 decades, Jimmy Smith single-handedly re-invented, and innovated, the way the organ is played today.
These BlueNote Recordings from the late fifties and early sixties are my favorites.
Many have been remastered and have added bonus tracks.
The remastered copy of 'Open House', also contains the album 'Plain Talk', so its a great value for the price. And does it cook!
Jimmys left us, but his outstanding legacy, and vast catalog, will always be with us to savor.
So, get them ribs ready, and crank this mother up!
