Music Craft: Jimmy Smith

Dec 15, 2012

(1965, 55 min)

Sponsored by KPLU 88.5

Years before being sampled by the Beastie Boys, Jimmy Smith's bebop-blues mastery of the Hammond B3 electric organ and Leslie speaker was caught in a tour documentary made for German TV in 1965. The look is black-and-white grainy, the sound is birthing acid fusion. With Billy Hart on drums and Quentin Warren on guitar.
