I really was thinking Jimmy Smith but it just always came out different
Maggy Scott - Talking To The World
Jimmy McGriff quote
Music is like a wheel, When you drive a car down a street, you might go down the same street, but you'll run over something today that wasn't there yesterday, so that puts a new look on that tire, and that's the way music is. When it goes over, it picks up something that wasn't there before.
If this album isn't in your collection you can't maintain you really know Jimmy Smith. For a lot of people this is the first and most played Jimmy Smith album and that might be because every time you play this album it will sound as the first time you hear it. Going to a deserted Island we would pick this one, among many others of course. Impressive big-band style orchestrations arranged by Lalo Schifrin, a shooting horn section trying to blow Jimmy Smith away from the organ. But he is so powerful on this album ...
Track #7 is dedicated to Alain Delon who is featured in the movie "Joy House". Two tunes from that picture are also on this album: Theme From Joy House and The Cat.
