Okay I can't give a technical review of this album but I can say that it's a great purchase. Good to sit and chill to, good to have on whilst dining, good to immerse yourself in.

Whether you're a jazz fan or not, try the samples here on Amazon and then take the plunge - it really is worth. it.

This excellent album by Hammond organist Jimmy Smith(1925-2005) was recorded in New York City on August 25, 1957 & February 25, 1958.
The lengthy title-track dedicated to Horace Silver features Lee Morgan(trumpet); Lou Donaldson(alto sax); Tina Brooks(tenor sax); Kenny Burrell(guitar) & Art Blakey(drums).
'J.O.S.' for James Oscar Smith has Lee Morgan(trumpet); George Coleman(alto sax); Eddie McFadden(guitar) & Donald Bailey(drums).
'Flamingo' is a quartet piece with Lee Morgan(trumpet); Kenny Burrell(guitar) & Art Blakey(drums).
This RVG Edition of 'The Sermon' contains plenty of exciting, soulful and swinging jazz with superb solos making it one of Jimmy Smith's finest BLUE NOTE albums.

The Hammond organ is one of those instruments that can sound really cheesy - but in the hands of this guy you are all aboard the smooth train to groovesville.
The Sermon is one of those jazz classics that even non-jazzers love.
I never get bored of this slab of pulsating hammond organ cool. Its just good taste in motion. Turn it up and dance. Turn it down and have a dinner party. Turn the lights down and get up close and personal with your chosen squeeze. Its the music for all possible occasions.
A sultry sensation. It takes the ham out of hammond and puts the orgasm into organ.

This album from 1958 is a great jazz album coming from the period just prior to the handful of very funky, bluesy albums made a year or two later. This is out and out jazz. There are just three tracks.

The title track "The Sermon" is a churchy blues that lasts for twenty minutes, features a sextet. We have a young Lee Morgan on trumpet, Lou Donaldson (alto), the much under-rated and under-recorded Tina Brooks (male, tenor; the name is a derivative of childhood nickname "teenie"), Kenny Burrell (gtr), Art Blakey (d) along with leader on Hammond organ. What a line-up! Twenty minutes of hard swinging, hard driven, hard blowing blues at a moderate tempo. Not only do the front three take exemplary solos, but so, of course, do Jimmy Smith and Kenny Burrell( who is to record frequently with JS in future years).

The second track, "J.O.S." (Jimmy Oscar Smith), is a really hard blowing blues taken at a faster tempo from a quintet: LM, George Coleman (tenor), Eddie McFadden, JS, Donald Bailey (d). Again this is a great jazz track that lasts twelve minutes.

The third and last track is an eight minute version of the standard "Flamingo". We return to a quartet of musicians from the first track. The saxophonists are missing. This tune is taken, as it should be, at a leisurely pace and the soloists have plenty of space to "strut their stuff"! Everyone is marvellous.

This is an excellent jazz album, and typical of the early era of the L.P. when musicians were restricted to 20-24 minutes for a track, rather than 3 minutes on 78rpm discs. Buy and enjoy.
