Unpredictable Jimmy Smith

There’s a lot of crap Hammond Organ records out there, and I should know cos I own quite a few (more on those another day), so it’s always nice to come across a genuinely great Hammond player, like ‘the unpredictable’ Jimmy Smith.  Part of the Verve Series on His Master’s Voice, I found this record for a quid and it’s in pretty nice condition for its age (c. mid-60s), featuring Jimmy backed by The Big Band on side 1 and in a more introspective mood with his Trio on the flip. Excellent stuff! I just wish there were more decent jazz records in the bargain bins…
