Jimmy Smith Root Down: Live on LP

The King of the Hammond B3 & Crew at Their Funkiest Best. This is a Serious Set and One that Deserves to Be in Every Collection!

The fact that Jimmy Smith moved the Hammond organ from the dance floor to the jazz scene and upgraded it to become a fully-fledged improvisation instrument is to be found in every good dictionary of music. Finally reissued back on vinyl, his essential 1972 Verve date Root Down is one of the most highly collectable live jazz albums ever cut and one of the King of the Hammond B3's finest.

Recorded on February 8, 1972, in Los Angeles, CA with funky support from Arthur Adams (guitar), Wilton Felder (bass), Paul Humphrey (drums), Buck Clarke (percussion) and Steve Williams (harmonica), the hypnotic 6-track effort is anchored by Jimmy's own "Root Down (And Get It)," which would later be famously sampled by the Beastie Boys on their 1994 album Ill Communication  and "Sagg Shootin' His Arrow" plus a distinct interpretation of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together."

Musicians:
Jimmy Smith (organ)
Arthur Adams (guitar)
Wilton Felder (bass)
Paul Humphrey (drums)
Buck Clarke (percussion)
Steve Williams (harmonica)
