On this album, Lucky Peterson pays tribute to his mentor, jazz legend Jimmy Smith. Fittingly, Peterson performs on Smith's favorite instrument, the Hammond B-3 organ. Peterson's style is anchored in blues with the beat of jazz, the groove of rhythm 'n' blues and the energy of rock 'n' roll. For this recording his virtuoso sidemen include guitarist Kelyn Crapp and drummer Herlin Riley.

When Jimmy Smith, the most important innovator of organ playing in jazz, recorded for the legendary label Blue Note, at the end of the fifties, at the beginning of the sixties, the music published there was called Jazz'n'Blues. Now, when Lucky Peterson from Buffalo, NY, who meets his father's club, Governor's Inn Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Willie Dixon, and many others, leaves the guitar behind and turns back to the B-3 Hammond organ no less than Jimmy Smith has learned to play, then the Jazz'n'Blues is as its best. The Bluesman, who has lived in Dallas for a quarter of a century now, has a secret love for France, where he is enormously popular. His "Tribute to Jimmy Smith" was recorded in Paris, and another French-American saxophonist Archie Shepp was guest.

This is an album that should not have worked. LaVern Baker (a fine R&B singer) was joined by all-stars from mainstream jazz (including trumpeter Buck Clayton, trombonist Vic Dickenson, tenor-saxophonist Paul Quinichette and pianist Nat Pierce) for twelve songs associated with the great '20s blues singer Bessie Smith. Despite the potentially conflicting styles, this project is quite successful and often exciting. The arrangements by Phil Moore, Nat Pierce, and Ernie Wilkins do not attempt to re-create the original recordings; Baker sings in her own style (rather than trying to emulate Bessie Smith), and the hot solos work well with her vocals.

This document of Smith's first year in the studio reveals a blues giant in full command of her talents. And while later dates - especially the epochal 1925 sessions with Louis Armstrong - offer more in the way of the era's horn-blowing royalty, these early sides nicely showcase Smith in the unadorned company of a variety of top pianists like Clarence Williams and Fletcher Henderson. The Empress of the Blues flexes her vocal muscle throughout, ranging from Broadway fare like "Baby Won't You Please Come Home" to the dark-hued rumblings of "Graveyard Dream Blues." She also revels in the provocative ambiguities of "Nobody in Town Can Bake a Sweet Jelly Roll" and puts her stamp on the future blues warhorse "'Tain't Nobody's Bizness If I Do…

This isn't the first time Lonnie Smith has released an album dedicated to guitar great Jimi Hendrix. As with Purple Haze, guitarist John Abercrombie and drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith backed up Smith for his first tip of the hat to Hendrix on Foxy Lady. It was so successful Smith went forward with a new tribute - Purple Haze.

Nathaniel Adams Coles (March 17, 1919 – February 15, 1965), known professionally as Nat King Cole, was an American jazz pianist and vocalist. He recorded over one hundred songs that became hits on the pop charts. His trio was the model for small jazz ensembles that followed. Cole also acted in films and on television and performed on Broadway. He was the first black man to host an American television series.
