Celo’s note:
Original vinyl rip

Kenny Burrell’s smooth, tasteful guitar work and Jimmy Smith’s intense, fire-breathing approach to the Hammond organ have been complementing each other, and delighting audiences, since the two first recorded together in 1957. Put together over three days in three different studios with various rhythm sections during Smith’s spare time while he was working on a big-band album in the summer of 1963. Blue Bash! captures the Burrell-Smith chemistry at its best. The alternative and breakdown takes included here offer further insight into this long-running and productive musical partership.
