‘At Club Baby Grand’ is a live album by American jazz organist Jimmy Smith featuring
performances recorded at Club Baby Grand in Wilmington, Delaware in 1956 and originally
released in 2 volumes. This is the organist at his raw, jawdropping best. You really do get the
feeling of what those original jazz fans and curiosity seekers must have felt when first going to a
Jimmy Smith show -- the Charlie Parker of the organ. Also make no mistake, this is the Jimmy
Smith show, and guitarist Thornel Schwartz and drummer Donald Bailey are simply along for the
ride. Smith is bursting out with amazing rapid runs on the B-3, filling the air from one end of the
room to the other as only he could.
