AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

Organist Jimmy Smith, in a trio with guitarist Kenny Burrell and drummer Jimmie Smith (no relation), performs six diverse blues and three familiar standards. Although the music is somewhat predictable, it swings hard and is often rollicking. Burrell sounds inspired and Smith, who largely originated this idiom, shows that he is still an enthusiastic and masterful player.
