Jimmy Smith - Back At The Chicken Shack


75th Blue Note anniversary vinyl  edition - remastered from original analog tapes
Back at the Chicken Shack
is one of organist Jimmy Smith's classic Blue Note sessions, and the first to draw attention to tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine. Recorded in 1960 with Kenny Burrell on guitar, Donald Bailey on drums, and Turrentine, the group reaches the peak of funky soul jazz that all other challengers of the genre would have to live up to. Included on this uptempo session is a reworking of When I Grow Too Old to Dream(a feature for Turrentine), Turrentine's Minor Chant, two Smith compositions, Messy Bessie as well as the set's notable title cut. Smith's Midnight Special album was recorded at these same sessions, and is also exceptional.
