Jimmy Smith is widely acknowledged at the founding father of the jazz organ, having popularized the instrument to a greater extent than any other player. This exciting album, a collaboration between Jimmy and arranger Lalo Schifrin, is a long-overdue re-release from 1980, and includes Howard Roberts (g), Time May (g), Dennis Budimir (g), Ray Brown (bass), Chuck Domonico (bass), Paulinho Da Costa (perc), Ronnie Foster (piano), Oscar Brasher (tpt), Jerry Hey (flugelhorn), and Alan Kaplan (tbn). Sure to be a hit!
