5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Jimmy Smith 1964 16 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is a brilliant album and a must for any lover of Jimmy Smith's groovy Hammond sounds. Lalo Schifrin is the musical director of a top class big band and Jimmy just shines in front of them. The title track comes from the classic French movie Joy Time which stars Alain Delon and Jane Fonda. If you love that real sixties feel then just buy this and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic ! 18 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a must-have for anyone who appreciates the development of jazz. A big-band sound featuring excellent musicians, including Kenny Burrell on guitar and Grady Tate on drums, arranged and conducted by Lalo Schifrin releases Jimmy Smith to explode with his dynamic Hammond organ through film theme tunes ("Joy House", "The Carpetbaggers")and arrangements of such classics as "St.Louis Blues" - I bet you've never heard it played like this - "Basin Street Blues" and "Blues In The Night". At times pleading and wailing, then driving and demanding but always dynamic Jimmy Smith gives everything and leaves you wanting more. The clincher is the title track, which just has to be the coolest piece of playing I've ever heard and surely inspired many keyboard players with it's funky sound. Hey and the cover is pretty damned cool too !

Just to add one more endorsement to reviewers' comments above, this album's sixties grooviness goes beyond the three cuts from THE LOVE CAGE soundtrack. Jimmy Smith and Lalo Schifrin's arrangement here of the main theme/titles from THE CARPETBAGGERS (side 1, band 4) is perhaps better known by UK TV viewers as the theme from BBC2 TV's long-running weekly show on finance and economic news, THE MONEY PROGRAMME.

4.0 out of 5 stars Long overdue purchase 20 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Should have bought this 50 years ago!
Bought Monster in the 60's, which has remained one of my favourites ever since, but never explored Jimmy Smith any further until now, when I find my musical tastes have gone full cycle.
The Cat has some great tracks which you can either become involved with or leave as background. Which ever way, you have to wonder at and admire Jimmy Smith's virtuosity on the Hammond organ. This album is as relevant now as it was back in 64.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something Different 14 Feb 2013
By Peter
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jimmy Smiths music makes a complete change to everything else and easy to listen to, but its not the modern music of today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it just for the Money Programme tune. 1 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because it had the Cat and Basin Street Blues on but I was delighted to find that the theme to the Carpet Baggers is the music that they used for the original BBC Money Programme. Stick it on headphones and play loud.
