"Moonlight In Vermont" was the song that helped propel Johnny Smith (and of course Stan Getz) to the top of the instrumental jazz world. Smith has said that he never regarded himself as a jazz guitarist and this is maybe hard to understand, because his uptempo improvisations surely fall solidly into that genre. However his slower tempo work on the standard type tunes is masterful and melodic. When you've listened to the range of his performances (mostly on the Royal Roost label) you begin to realise that he is a virtuoso player and to label him as a "jazzer" would surely be unfair.

This album was recorded in 1952/53 but really doesn't sound dated at all. Smith's high speed runs are amazing because they simply don't wander one iota outside the chord sequence. There are just no wrong notes. The standards are beautifully executed and you can feel his appreciation of the structure of each song. A reviewer once described Smith's chords as "hanging like smoke in a crowded room" and I think this describes his style perfectly. He employed what he called "vertical voicing" - notes played in tight clusters to create complex-sounding chords and harmonised melody lines. He observed keyboard players employing this style. On guitar this is extremely difficult because of the stretching involved. He must have toiled many long hours to perfect his technique.

The late great Barney Kessel summed up Johnny Smith very well: "...no-one in the world plays the guitar better than he. They might play it differently, but nobody plays it better".

If you haven't heard Johnny Smith before, go out and get this album and you will see what Barney meant.

By os TOP 500 REVIEWER on 25 Aug. 2014
Format: Audio CD
Tommy Smith is one of the greatest guitarists that most people, let alone jazz guitarists have never heard of. In this session from 1952 we hear Tommy with Stan Getz, a capable rhythm section and pianist playing a mixture of standards, some ballads and the occasional self-penned tune.

The album could be described almost as chamber jazz in so far as it sounds highly arranged with space for solo's but lacking the looseness of the jam session. However it is by no means 'easy listening' or mechanical, if easy listening means bland and predictable. No this is an album where each player knows their part and simply plays it as directed. The mood is sophisticated, relaxed with spells of jauntiness. The execution smooth, not lifeless or slick. So if you are looking for torrents of guitar excess, this is not the album for you.

There is of course plenty of great playing. Stan Getz provides many a beautifully plaintive solo, as usual economy and melody are his key watchwords. Smith is no less an astonishing musician. His ability to play interesting lines at express speed takes some believing, of which his work on 'Jaguar' is a perfect example. He is also a beautiful player of chords-which often have an almost liquid, lilting feel. Listen to his fabulous take on 'My Funny Valentine' and be prepared to be amazed. It should not be forgotten, but he is capable user of octaves as 'Sometimes I Happy', giving his sound a warmth and body that really aids the music. It is obvious that Tommy Smith is a thoughtful, tasteful player is interested in the overall conception of the music, rather than the focus on his obvious technical facility.

Recommended album, even if you are not a jazz guitarist!

This is simply the most beautiful, swinging, guitar-led, ensemble record ever made. Condemned by the ignorant as cocktail jazz this record should be in every jazz lover's collection. Smith's improvisational skills and technical prowess make this a truly exquisite piece of work; I first heard it in the sixties and now cannot understand why I waited until this year to actually obtain it. Go out and buy - now!!

This album is truly first class and anybody who loves jazz should have it in their collection. Johnny Smith's sense of taste is unquestionned, as always. The slow pieces are breathtakingly beautiful and the fast pieces are just breathtaking - but always for good reason and never for the sake of just being flash. Stan Getz and Zoot Sims shine brilliantly too. So this is not just for guitar fans, but rather anyone who loves really good jazz.

Sound was a bit suspect on this CD, it's supposed to be remastered but it sounds like mike distortion - perhaps that's original and to be expected however I was a little disappointed. I've heard other Johnny Smith tracks and really enjoyed them, I guess I haven't found the right album yet

I used to listen to my eldest brothers albums when I was young. He was into jazz, Stan Getz, Gerry Mulligan and the great johnny Smith. I have already put this on my I pod and just chill to those great sounds.
