Jimmy Smith – Fourmost {Milestone}


Review by Scott Yanow (allmusic.com)
Organist Jimmy Smith has a reunion on this CD with his 30 plus-year associates tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine and guitarist Kenny Burrell along with drummer Grady Tate. Together they play spirited and creative versions of standards and blues. The highpoints include “Midnight Special,” a swinging “Main Stem,” Tate’s warm vocal on “My Funny Valentine” and a lengthy rendition of “Quiet Nights.” Suffice it to say that this all-star date reaches its potential and is easily recommended to fans of straightahead jazz.
