Jimmy Smith: Next Steps

Jimmy Smith: Next Steps

Though Jimmy Smith became a legend from the ‘50s onward by lending a jazzman's swing to R&B-based tunes, he could work his Hammond magic on almost any source material. The organist sounds just as soulful reinterpreting Prokofiev's Peter & The Wolf on the simmering "Elegy for a Duck" as he does when he's leaning hard into a fleet-fingered take on Charlie Parker's bebop standard "Au Privave."
