Recorded live on August 4, 1956 at Club Baby Grand, Wilmington, Delaware.

Jimmy Smith’s initial success was in the many urban, inner city jazz clubs that dotted America in the 1950s. Blue Note decided to venture out of New York and capture their unique new jazz star in his element at Club Baby Grand, Wilminton, Delware on August 4, 1956. The trio is smokin’ and this revolutionary organist plays like a man possessed. His 12-minute excursion on “The Preacher” and dazzling extended improvisation on “It’s Allright with Me” are among the highlights of these two volumes.
