When it comes to the classic jazz organ sound--based in a mingling of hard bop and influences of blues and gospel--Jimmy Smith was first among equals. Among many other musical virtues, his organ tone was simultaneously thick and yet highly nimble. While most of Smith's recordings find him in small-to-medium-sized groups, 1963's HOBO FLATS features big band arrangements by the great Oliver Nelson. As a counter to Smith's bluesy, funky style, Nelson's orchestrations exude sweeping, cinematic scope, giving the songs plenty of sentiment and drama.
