Description

180g vinyl 2LP set in deluxe gatefold sleeve with iconic pictures by jazz photographer Francis Wolff. Originally released as 'Groovin' at Smalls' Paradise Vols.1 and 2 (Blue Note BLP-1585 & BLP -1586).

Jimmy Smith's unparalleled skills with the Hammond helped to popularize the electric organ as a jazz and blues instrument, and he recorded prolifically during his long career. A perennial poll winner since the late '50s, Smith redefined the instrument. His new sound utilized the first three draw bars and the percussion feature of the Hammond B-3. Recorded live in 1957 at the Smalls' Paradise club in New York, this LP showcases Smith in a trio format backed by guitar and drums.

"On Groovin' at Smalls' Paradise, Smith is in his element in a club setting. This is the Smith album to get." - **** Richard Cook & Brian Morton, Penguin Guide to Jazz
