Never miss a Jimmy Smith record, especially this one, full of jazz grooves gems, where Oliver Nelson's arrangements supports Jimmy Smith's smooth organ. Recorded in 1968 on Verve, this is a luxury melting pot of a crossover between Lalo Schifrin and Burt Bacharach alchemies. You'll find terrific bass loops and lush orchestrations all along these 9 tracks. This LP oppened with a brilliant cover of the "mission impossible" theme, followed by be-bops incursions, the mainstream is jazz and the background groove. This is a must Have !

Thanks for a marvellous blog. I discovered it last week and downloaded all available files, except two: the Montparnasse ones, because I was saving them last (got juiced up to see many music files that remind me of a certain beloved record shop / label) - then the rapidshare happy hour ended. Have since been extremely busy and forgot to come back, also to leave a thank you in the comments.

So this is what I do now. Warm thanks :)

merci Agent Double -O- Soul, etant grand fan devant l'eternel (de) Monsieur Gainsbourg, j'ai déjà une discographie bien fournie, mais, bien vu, Madame Claude ne fait pas encore partie de mes connaissances, mis a part quelques titres du coffret "le cinéma de Serge Gainsbourg". Je t'encourage vivement a recréer un blog et de te fixer toi même des limites si tu crains (quoi d'ailleurs ?). Moi, je m'oblige à numériser 1 vinyl par semaine et ça bouffe une soirée...
Et puis pas question de "money" ou commerce quelconque.

N'hésite pas plutôt a me contacter via mon adresse e-mail que tu trouveras sur SOC. Merci encore et bon courage pour une "éventuelle" reprise d'activité.

Bonjour Chez Vous !
