Editorial Reviews

Recorded the first day of February in 1963, but not released for a few years, Bucket! is a fairly typical Jimmy Smith session, featuring the organist running through a selection of originals and standards with guitarist Quentin Warren and drummer Donald Bailey in tow. The vibe is relaxed, not too laid-back but hardly energetic, as the trio easily strolls through bluesy ballads and lightly swinging soulful ballads.

Jimmy Smith recorded "Bucket" his last trio effort, a week before his Blue Note contract ended with the classic "Prayer Meetin'". The trio consists of regulars Quentin Warren on guitar, and Donald Bailey on drums, and the programs features standards ballads, and blues. This is a fine session, but the one critique I have with it is that Jimmy's improvisations on some tracks are so closely tied in with the melodies that the listener unfamiliar with his work can assume that he is not improvising at all. For the Smith fan, the tunes give the listener the pleasure of hearing his distinctive touch on mellower material. This is particularly evident in "Come Rain or Come Shine" where Jimmy gently states the melody with respect for the lyrics, and on the lightly swinging "Just Squeeze Me" where Quentin Warren also shares a piece of the pie. There definitely is the Jimmy Smith fire present also, as he shows on the title track, the waltz time "3 for 4", and "John Brown's Body". "Bucket" is a long overdue and welcome addition with a late night feel, and in excellent remastered 24 bit sound.

Not one of the best ones. The production on this is very strange, with odd dropouts in volume throughout. This makes listening difficult, especially since nothing on here is really loud. Or fast. The tempo is medium and the volume is low, and quite honestly, it tends to drag.
The song choice is disappointing, too: I mean, really, "Careless Love" and "John Brown's Body"? There was absolutely no reason to record these mummified old folksongs, which are both best left forgotten - in these versions or any other.
There seems to be a big lack of energy here on Jimmy's part. Quentin Warren and Donald Bailey are on top of things, but Jimmy seems to be thinking of his new Verve contract and the big bands he'd be working with over there. But whatever he was thinking about, it sure wasn't this session.
Overall, I'd say don't get it. There's some decent music on here but it's very disappointing by comparison to his other albums. If you're looking for an intro to Jimmy Smith, "The Sermon" is it. I'd recommend this only to completists.

When i wrote this, 'Bucket' had 2.5 stars.
It is not a 2.5 star album...
it is at least a 4.
The trio work well, it is a really nice easy listening soul jazz album.
NO it is not as good as jimmy smiths 'Prayer Meeting' that he recorded a week later that had mister Turrentine on sax.
NO it not as good as back at the Chicken Shack, Home cookin, Blue bash and many other epic Jimmy Smith albums,
BUT it is not a 2.5 star album.
respect.

If you want to hear jimmy smith ripping the bags out of it, don't buy this album.

If you want to hear his smooth tones with minimal soloing, stripped right back in a trio setting with guitar and drums, then this is a good one to get.
