The Incredible Jimmy Smith

April 12th, 2002

I’ve become addicted to Jimmy Smith, the king of the Jazz-Funk Hammond B3 organ. I actually found this page of Immortal Hammond Solos, and though there were many, none of the others quite matched Jimmy’s   mastery.

I absolutely love going to the basement, cranking it up, sticking on the headphones and playing along on the drums. Of course, my wife has a different opinion.
