Oh no! When did he die?


He's one of my greatest heros. Nearly every great B3 player alive acknowledges Jimmy as a major influence.





Reality is like the sun - you can block it out for a time but it ain't goin' away...

Ah man...Damn it!


I'm a huge JS fan.


Time for all who are curious about Jimmy Smith to run out and buy 'Root Down' on CD. It's the essential Jimmy Smith recording. It's one big jam at a small club, back in the seventies. Surprisingly good production quality, too.


Jimmy will live on through his recordings, fortunately for those of us who love the sound of a well-played B3.
