AllMusic Review by

Jazz Profile compiles highlights from Jimmy Smith's recordings for Blue Note, drawing a rough portrait of his career. The compilation not only concentrates on Smith's hard-swinging soul-jazz and funk, but there's also more reflective numbers, giving a good sense of his depth and range. While there isn't anything here that will appeal to collector's, Jazz Profile does offer a nice introduction for curious listeners.
