Jimmy Smith

Jimmy Smith Jimmy Smith changed the way we hear the jazz organ.  He created a whole new language of blues and bebop that is part of the sound every B3 player uses today.  Hear the fun and fabulous genius of jazz giant Jimmy Smith tonight on the 9 O'clock Special, and Marty Ashby stops by to talk about his Christmas concert when jazz awakes at 8.
