Product Description:

Personnel: Jimmy Smith (organ).
Additional personnel: Quentin Warren (guitar); Donald Bailey (drums).
When it comes to jazz organ, Jimmy Smith is definitely among the most popular performers ever. Along with McDuff and McGriff, Smith came to define the soul-jazz genre--an engaging, grooving mixture of gospel, R&B, pop, and hard bop elements. Previously unreleased, STRAIGHT LIFE is a trio session from 1961 recorded shortly before Smith's rise to stardom beyond the jazz scene. LIFE is a fun romp through a batch of early pop standards (plus a few originals) with Smith cooking on all burners and frequent drummer Donald Bailey providing the right snap and crackle.
