Compared to his earlier Blue Note recordings, organist Jimmy Smith's outings for Verve are not as strong from a jazz standpoint. Certainly his renditions of the Theme from Joy House, The Cat, and the Main Title from The Carpetbaggers are not all that significant. However, this set has some tasteful arrangements for the big band by Lalo Schifrin, and some good playing by the great organist on a variety of other blues-oriented material. Album 2005 8 Songs. The Cat from Joy House. Jimmy Smith , Joey DeFrancesco. Songs in album Incredible 1999. Jimmy Smith has that special sound you hear in Jazz, Soul, and Funk The album is from 1964. As the inside of the album says, Jimmy Smith cuts though grease like fresh battery acid. Like a modern Paul Bunyan with a tremendous pair of hands. That is intense If you want incredible Jazz I recommend this album Read more. All Day Long. All the Things You Are. Billie's Bounce. Body and Soul. Buns a Plenty. Falling in Love With Love
