Smoke Notes

This very welcome reissue fills one of the most important gaps in the Smith canon. Taken from recording sessions throughout 1958 and 1959, it marks an important shift in Smiths technique and direction, yet was never a favorite with critics, instead becoming a hit record purely on the back of its popularity. Listening to the low down funk and sinewy grooves its hard to see why it didnt garner glowing press reports, yet the state of Jazz was in revolutionary mode by the early sixties and this might just have been a little too accessible for the times. Smiths distinctive organ sound had a sudden resurgence in the late seventies with the birth of jazz-funk, then in the nineties with acid-jazz, and he has continued to remain immensely popular until today, with many of his songs sampled and covered in the realm of modern funk and hip-hop. Home Cookin sees Smith alongside talented guitarist Kenny Burrell, regular stickman Donald Bailey and gifted tenor saxophonist Percy France (in a rare appearance on record). Burrell lends typically brilliant fretwork throughout and sounds at his very best on a near perfect reading of his own composition "Sugar Hill". Smith sounds fresh and alive, with Messin Around and Since I Fell For You among his very best efforts. Bailey simply provides a unique understanding of Smith, and as always is at his swinging best. France sounds tremendous on the R&B orientated material - I Got A Woman providing ample melody and soul for his smoky lines. The whole album bounces along with an energy that is both infectious and celebrates life. Few can claim to achieve these qualities, yet Smith manages it with natural ease and complete success. Recommended.
