O’s Notes: Wait a minute! This is actually a tribute album to the late, legendary B-3 master Jimmy Smith by his namesake Jimmie Smith. The young Jimmie takes on the music of the master at a concert“Live In Music City. Paul Brown (keyboards), Marcus Finnie (d), Hamilton Hardin (b), James DaSilva (g) and a crisp horn section with Chris West (t-sax), Jon-Paul Frappier (t) and Chris Dunn (tb) join Smith for an electric, rockin’, soul-drenched set. The contemporary Smith and his team took on an ambitious task and did well!
