Recorded at the Atlanta Free Jazz Festival, Atlanta, Georgia.
Organist Jimmy Smith's second of two LPs for the Elektra Musician label is unusual in a couple of respects. He had never played organ with tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin before and on one piece, "Piano Solo Medley," Smith has a very rare feature on piano. Otherwise, Keep on Comin' is in the soulfully swinging vein that one associates with the great organist, with the music comprised of recent originals by Smith, Griffin, and guitarist Kenny Burrell, who with drummer Mike Baker completes the quartet. ~ Scott Yanow
