Soundtrack from your dreams of early 1960s refrigerators, Jimmy Smith stepping out, ice still on his brow to rapturous applause, biting one helluva chunk from Lalo Schifrin‘s scores of stuff that really should be familiar, lest you be using that organ to fiddle around with ‘Kum Ba Yah’ after sundown. […]

SA-CD.net
The sound is wide and very open. Instruments are rendered very nicely. From starts to finish this disc is terrific. The organ is also dynamically recorded. I cant say its the greatest sacd ever made or recorded but I can say that the sound is terrifiic and the album a must have if you like energetic jazz. […]

allmusic
Also, the combination of organ with a big band is sometimes quite appealing, making this album worth picking up despite its commercial focus. […]
