Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Originally released as Groovin' at Smalls' Paradise Vols.1 and 2. Jimmy Smith's unparalleled skills with the Hammond helped to popularize the electric organ as a jazz and blues instrument, and he recorded prolifically during his long career. A perennial poll winner since the late '50s, Smith redefined the instrument. His new sound utilized the first three draw bars and the percussion feature of the Hammond B-3. Recorded live in 1957 at the Smalls' Paradise club in New York, this LP showcases Smith in a trio format backed by guitar and drums.
