Jazz | 192 kpbs | mp3 | 96 mb

Funkadelic jazz at its rowdiest and finest moment! Jimmy Smith ruled the Hammond organ in the '50s through the '70s. He revolutionized the instrument, showing it could be creatively used in a jazz context and popularized in the process.

Recorded live in Los Angeles in February 1972, Root Down captures a performance Smith gave with a relatively young supporting band who were clearly influenced by modern funk and rock. They push Smith to playing low-down grooves that truly cook: "Sagg Shootin' His Arrow" and "Root Down (And Get It)" are among the hottest tracks he ever cut, especially in this restored and remastered full-length version showcased on the 2000 Verve By Request reissue.

Influenced by Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster but definitely his own person, Ike Quebec was one of the finest swing-oriented tenor saxman of the 1940s until his too early death in 1963. Quebec had a big, breathy sound that was distinctive and easily recognizable, and he was quite consistent when it came to came to down-home blues, sexy ballads, and up-tempo aggression.

Blue and Sentimental is his signature masterpiece on the Blue Note label, a superbly sensuous blend of lusty blues swagger and achingly romantic ballads.
