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 !
