Blue Note 1585: Jimmy Smith's Groovin' at Smalls' Paradise..recorded live in Harlem late 1957.... i love this LP cover.. but i got to say that Jimmy Smith's trio LPs are beyond dull and some of his ballads go on and on in a style reminiscent of chamber music or baroque period classical.... there's nothing funky or greasy about them.... this LP is just beyond slow with tortous versions of standards such as Laura (particularly harrowing) and My Funny love that LP cover though!
