Jimmy Smith • Softly As A Summer Breeze

Though virtuoso organist Smith is known primarily as a practitioner of bluesy, groove-oriented tune, this 1958 date remains true to its title, exploring a more relaxed ballad feel on standards like "These Foolish Things," "It Could Happen To You" and "Someone To Watch Over Me." Smith's airy chordal work and breezy solos mesh perfectly with guitarist Kenny Burrell's elegant melodic trills. Philly Joe Jones' subtle, tasty brush work provides the necessary motion, and when things rev up, as on the Monk composition "Hackensack," Jones is the driving force behind Smith's explorations. Four tunes featuring singer Bill Henderson are added to this reissue, sweetening the pot for Smith fans.

2. Hackensack
3. It Could Happen to You
4. Sometimes I'm Happy
5. Someone to Watch Over Me
