Anyone heard the RVG version of "Back at the Chicken Shack" by Jimmy Smith?
I have the original version and want to know how it stacks up to the RVG release. I'm finding most of the recording have sounded pretty darn good!

Also anyone have any thoughts on this particular period 55-65 Bop, Hard Bop etc recordings. I'm always looking for new artists.

Cheers!

Grab that Smith remaster....it's well done. :wink:

Glad to have a Jazz Circle, have we really not had one all this time? (Haven't been on much the last few months  :scratch: )  Since Jazz is one of the "pure" audiophile genres, I have accumulated more and more of it. The other 2 "pure" genres being classical, and acoustic guitar :)

I agree! This album is on fire. The stuff that he did with Wes Montgomery is amazing too.

Great to see that in the high end,audiophile world, Jazz is still going strong.

Hello all, I'm looking forward to sharing in the Jazz circle as I'm rediscovering my old pops (lost him in 05 bless him) love for Jazz he knew Ronnie Scott & Ted Heath back in the days and spent a lot of time hanging out with Ronnie and then in his club, all long before myself.   

So thank you for having a Jazz Circle

What about some love for anything Wynton Learson Marsalis?  Gold standard in my book.
