Funkadelic jazz at its rowdiest and finest moment! Jimmy Smith ruled the Hammond organ in the '50s through the '70s. He revolutionized the instrument, showing it could be creatively used in a jazz context and popularized in the process.

Recorded live in Los Angeles in February 1972, Root Down captures a performance Smith gave with a relatively young supporting band who were clearly influenced by modern funk and rock. They push Smith to playing low-down grooves that truly cook: "Sagg Shootin' His Arrow" and "Root Down (And Get It)" are among the hottest tracks he ever cut, especially in this restored and remastered full-length version showcased on the 2000 Verve By Request reissue.

Extending the good vibes created out of their first pairing on the live recording Incredible!, organists Joey Defrancesco and Jimmy Smith get down to business on Legacy. The two stellar and funky musicians have a great musical rapport and seem to really enjoy playing together. Fans of Incredible! will most likely find much to enjoy here. The album has a heavy Latin sound with percussionists Ramon Banda and Jose "Joey" de Leon supplying additional timbales and conga rhythms respectively. Also joining in this time around is special guest tenor saxophonist James Moody, who adds his fiery bop chops to "Jones'n for Elvin." Backing Defrancesco and Smith here are bassist Tony Banda, guitarist Paul Bollenback, and drummer Steve Ferrone.

When Jimmy Smith burst on the scene in 1955, playing his exciting brand of jazz organ at the Café Bohemia and the following year on records for Blue Note, he seemed to appear fully formed from out of nowhere. In the early '60s, a budget LP from the Up Front label had ten obscure selections from the beginning of Smith's career, but failed to give any real information. Now those ten numbers plus six other cuts have been reissued on this historic CD. Recorded most likely during 1953-1954, the performances on this disc comprise Jimmy Smith's earliest recording sessions.

When Jimmy Smith, the most important innovator of organ playing in jazz, recorded for the legendary label Blue Note, at the end of the fifties, at the beginning of the sixties, the music published there was called Jazz'n'Blues. Now, when Lucky Peterson from Buffalo, NY, who meets his father's club, Governor's Inn Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Willie Dixon, and many others, leaves the guitar behind and turns back to the B-3 Hammond organ no less than Jimmy Smith has learned to play, then the Jazz'n'Blues is as its best. The Bluesman, who has lived in Dallas for a quarter of a century now, has a secret love for France, where he is enormously popular. His "Tribute to Jimmy Smith" was recorded in Paris, and another French-American saxophonist Archie Shepp was guest.

On this album, Lucky Peterson pays tribute to his mentor, jazz legend Jimmy Smith. Fittingly, Peterson performs on Smith's favorite instrument, the Hammond B-3 organ. Peterson's style is anchored in blues with the beat of jazz, the groove of rhythm 'n' blues and the energy of rock 'n' roll. For this recording his virtuoso sidemen include guitarist Kelyn Crapp and drummer Herlin Riley.

The same formula that made the Fantasy 45 Series perhaps the most successful audiophile reissue collection ever is now being reapplied to Blue Note reissues! Jimmy Smith's April 25, 1960 session with the perfect cast of Stanley Turrentine, Kenny Burrell and Donald Bailey produced these two classic albums that are the pinnacle of the organ-tenor style. A perfect selection of material played at the perfect tempo by great musicians who connect on the deepest, most soulful level. Not a bad day's work. Mastered by Kevin Gray & Steve Hoffman at AcousTech.

Groove great Kenny Burrell and Jimmy Smith (Hammond organ) together on the same album. Includes a rendition of "Fever." Three days of spare studio time while Smith was at work on a big-band date led to this highly enjoyable blowing session. The principals' interplay on the title-track sums up their whole musical relationship: punchy, bluesy but soaked in the good homour of playing for kicks.

Jimmy Smith wasn't the first organ player in jazz, but no one had a greater influence with the instrument than he did; Smith coaxed a rich, grooving tone from the Hammond B-3, and his sound and style made him a top instrumentalist in the 1950s and '60s, while a number of rock and R&B keyboardists would learn valuable lessons from Smith's example.
