Jimmy Smith – Go For What Cha Know

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“23 years after leaving the label, organist Jimmy Smith returned to the Blue Note label. In addition to signing up two of his old associates who had been with him on many classic Blue Note albums of the past (guitarist Kenny Burrell and tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine), Smith uses such fine players as guest pianist Monty Alexander (on two songs), bassist Buster Williams, and drummer Grady Tate (who takes a warm ballad vocal on “She’s Out of My Life”). “Fungii Mama” and “Go for Whatcha Know” are the highlights of this enjoyable LP.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
