I'm Movin' On has a perfectly suitable title -- it's the first of four albums that organist Jimmy Smith made within an eight-day period for Blue Note before permanently leaving the label for Verve. Although notable for matching Smith with guitarist Grant Green in what would be their only joint recording (drummer Donald Bailey completes the trio), the music is a fairly typical Smith session with the repertoire including blues, a couple of standards, and ballads. The solos are well-played but nothing too surprising occurs.
