Jimmy Smith was the most inventive and technically skilled organist of the Bop generation. Originally released in 1957, “A date with J.M.” features performances recorded in the same year with Smith heading a sextet including a bunch of Blue Notes heavyweights such as Donald Byrd – trumpet, Lou Donaldson – alto saxophone, Hank Mobley – tenor saxophone, Art Blakey – drums, plus a guitar-organ-drums combo with guitarist Eddie McFadden and drummer Donald Bailey, and as one would expect with those names this is groovy Jazz at its best!
