If you dig Red Clay I also recommend Turrentine's albums; Sugar, Cherry, Salt Song & Don't Mess With Mr. T.

The Cannonball Adderley Sextet with Yusef Lateef is one of the best jazz bands of all-time.

It's a later classic. Some of the Smith purists don't like the overt funk direction of this album, but most open-minded fans love it.

John McLaughlin & The 4th Dimension - recording the song "The Fine Line" live in the studio. The performance starts at :33 (the intro music is a different track).

That's a really good documentary with some priceless footage of Smith.

When it comes to Smith's recordings, I start liking him around 1957, his earliest albums still had a little bit too much of the "roller rink" sound but he jettisoned all that and became leaner and meaner by the time he got to "The Sermon" (1957). Pretty much all his Blue Note albums between 1957 and 1964 are worth checking out.

It's important to note that he almost singlehandedly invented the jazz organ sound, while others had played the instrument previously, nobody came close to the groundbreaking shit he came up with.

Smith started out as a pianist, when he decided to switch to organ he rented a rehearsal space and woodshedded for almost a year...possibly one of the most well-spent years in jazz history, because when he emerged he had created an entire new vocabulary.

Amazing story.

The Sidewinder was a surprise crossover hit in 1964, it was even used in car commercials. Blue Note would spend the next 3 years trying to replicate it's success, pretty much every Blue Note album after that would open with a boogaloo tune.

That entire Africa/Brass album is fantastic. I was always partial to "Song For The Underground Railroad". Eric Dolphy did the horn charts for the brass section.

Thanks, chew. Ronnie Verrell was the drummer who did Animal's parts in the drum battle against Buddy Rich on The Muppet Show.
