Delivery time: 1-2 weeks if available from supplier

Jimmy Smith ruled the Hammond organ in the '50s and '60s. He revolutionized the instrument, showing it could be creatively used in a jazz context and popularized in the process. His Blue Note sessions from 1956 to 1963 were extremely influential and many, like 1960's Back at the Chicken Shack and 1958 's The Sermon, are classics.

Jimmy Smith's April 25, 1960 session with the cast of Stanley Turrentine, Kenny Burrell and Donald Bailey yielded the exemplary, Back at the Chicken Shack, an album that stands at the pinnacle of the organ-tenor style. A prototypical soul-jazz recording, the album features an ideal selection of material played at the perfect tempo by great musicians who connect on the deepest, most soulful level.

Remastered and reissued as part of the Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue .
