4.7 out of 5 stars

I agree with all the reviewers who appreciated this album. As for the vinyl, it is an excellent replica of the original BLUE NOTE album. BLUE NOTE is famous for its jazz recordings, and this one sounds excellent, being carefully remastered.

WARNING: do not buy this album from the Russian manufacturer DOL. It is a fake, DOL has not the original master source, but cuts vinyls from digital files, usually cds from the market. You will have a vinyl that sounds as a cd or even worse. It's a trickery and I do not know why amazon sells such contrefaits.

Only four stars because the vinyl came with a lost of muck in the grooves. It should be thoroughly cleaned and even so when I played it firstly there was muck accumulated on the needle of the card.

I reckon it's the chemistry between organ, sax and guitar which makes this album such an enjoyable, happily funky, melodic treat. From the title track onwards Smith and Turrentine alternate solos, following and embellishing one another's melody lines. Sometimes the organ is delivering a rich bounce; at others rumbling deeply like distant thunder. Turrentine is the ideal partner, with a richly mellow reed sound, whether he's producing perky notes, or lazy honeyed melodic layers.

Burrell on guitar is enmeshed in the tight sound, driven along sympathetically by Bailey's drums. The shortest track here is just short of six minutes, while the longest is more than double that. As a result, there is time for the soloists to 'pass the baton round' and stretch out, and the music is given plenty of room to breath. Richly lovely stuff.

Another blast from my childhood as the memories flood back driven by the incredible Jimmy Smith and his Hammond organ.

Would recommend to anyone with a love of retro jazz.

The album is great, no doubt about that. BUT...These 75th anniversary pressings seem to suck big time. Crappy pressing. Will not order any more of these Blue note issues, I'll rather stick to Analogue Productions, Music Matters etc. event though the price is rather stiff compared to this issue.

Anyway, not much to say about the music that hasn't been said. Classic B3 groovy stuff from Jimmy Smith.
