Editorial Reviews

Product Description


Organist Jimmy Smith's Blue Note and Verve back-catalog is the stuff of legend, and the man plays as well on Dot Com Blues as he ever has. But this session is more than another Jimmy Smith album. At times you wonder where Jimmy is among all the accompanying star power, but if you listen, he is still there, rubbing the honeyed keys as B.B. King, Etta James, Dr. John, and Keb Mo wail and work it. Smith shows he is still the master of the blueswalk in "8 Counts for Rita," "C.C. Rider," "Tuition Blues," and the title track, as well as on a sumptuously slow version of "Mood Indigo." Here, Smith solos with gritty abandon in a small-group setting with such notables as guitarist Russell Malone, drummer Harvey Mason, and percussionist Lenny Castro. Smith is more often felt than heard elsewhere, though, and maybe that is understandable when Etta James lets rips on a wobbly version of "I Just Wanna Make Love to You." The opening "Only in It for the Money" is better balanced, perhaps because Dr. John understands the value of less-is-more and, as a fellow keyboardist, doesn't want to step on Smith's celebrated toes. Finally, B.B. King helps make "Three O'Clock Blues" a rocking blowout that transports the listener back to some rock & blues tent meeting circa 1956. Dot Com Blues proves that Jimmy Smith can still raise the rug and do what he does best, star power in attendance or not. --Ken Micallef

5.0 out of 5 stars The Champ Returns With Dot Com Blues March 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The master of the Hammond B-3 returns with a new compact disc. One part jazz + one part blues + one part groove = an excellent disc. This is Jimmy Smith's first new disc in a while and I was eagerly anticipating it. I am a big fan and have most of his discs that are in print. The set is varied, some of the cuts are instrumental and some feature vocals. There are also numbers performed with a small combo as well as with a horn section. This session also features a number of guests including; Dr. John, Taj Mahal, Etta James, B.B. King and Keb Mo' on vocals. His small combo features underrated guitarist Russell Malone. The music is mixture of stone blues, jazzier numbers and some greasy funk. My favorites include the title track as well as "8 Counts For Rita" and "Mr. Johnson which features Dr. John on piano. My favorite vocal number is "Three O' Clock Blues" with B.B. King on guitar and vocals. This cut makes me wish they had cut an entire cd together like King's recent collaboration with Eric Clapton. B.B.'s guitar is jazzy enough to mesh well with Smith's organ playing. The other guest vocalists also are impressive and it sounds as if fun was had by all. If you prefer your blues a little more jazzy, you will certainly enjoy this disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jimmy Smith Jams with Blues Artists May 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Known primarily as a jazz organist, Jimmy Smith plays with blues artists Dr. John, Etta James, B. B. King and contemporary blues vocalist-guitarist Keb' Mo' on "dot com blues," Smith's newest recording. In fact, his first recording in five years. Smith's performance on the Hammond B3 is superb sixty minutes of good-time blues music.
Smith teams with Dr. John on three numbers, Dr. John's own "Only in It for the Money; " an instrumental, " Mr. Johnson" attributed to Smith and Dr. John; and my favorite cut, Willie Dixon's " I Just Wanna Make Love to You" with Etta James on vocals. Taj Mahal solos on vocals and guitar on his own composition "Strut." Keb' Mo' performs vocal and guitar chores on his own " Over & Over." The numbers with the guest artists have an expanded group including saxophone and tumpet/ flugelhorn whereas about half the numbers have Jimmy Smith on organ accompanied by Russell Malone on guitar, Reggie McBride on bass guitar and Harvey Mason on drums. Only Duke Ellington's "Mood Indigo," performed here with Smith's small group and string bass master John Clayton substituting for Reggie McBride, is outside the genre. It is respectfully rendered by Jimmy Smith and group, as well.
It is said that blues music can cure the blues, but you don't have to have the blues to enjoy this album. Here's hoping Jimmy Smith doesn't wait another five years for his next CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars HE'S BACK-THE ORIGINAL JIMMY SMITH WE ALL KNEW! January 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I just bought this CD. I haven't purchased one of his CDs in a long time since he went to playing progressive jazz way out in left field. This CD is so great I can't turn the stereo up loud enough to get inside it. He's playing the way we knew him to play when he was on top. He gets down & dirty & funky. He's got a great horn section & some super vocalists & guests musicians. I love every track on it. If you're an R&B/Jazz organ fan, you've got to get this CD for your collection. You'll love it! I guarantee it!

5.0 out of 5 stars At Age 76, THE Hammond Master Delivers Again! March 8, 2001
Format:Audio CD
What can one say about Jimmy Smith, the Hammond B-3 Lion In Winter (age 76, by my count) that hasn't been said already? Perhaps a brief rundown of accolades for the uninitiated: a major instrumental star since the early 1950s; almost unarguably THE originator of the Hammond organ soul-jazz style that was so popular in the early sixties (Groove Holmes, Jimmy McGriff, Charles Earland, and Jack MacDuff all owe their living to Smith); the man who essentially validated the Hammond organ as a viable jazz/blues instrument (very few serious keyboardists had based their sound on it before him); and not just the first, but perhaps the best organist in the jazz-blues idiom EVER. Period.
Dot Com Blues is a stellar Jimmy Smith set. The Hammond master has aged well. The esteem in which he is held is revealed by the company he keeps: B.B. King, Etta James, Dr. John, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo. Stock bandmates on this album are the likes of Russell Malone (Diana Krall's superb guitarist--an instrumental star in his own right) and Harvey Mason, session drummer par excellence--remember George Benson's "Weekend In LA" album, with it's kickbutt version of "On Broadway"? Harvey Mason was the drummer.
It's not necessary to rhapsodize about the great guest-star cuts. Fantastic, as one would expect. What I will mention are two great little Jimmy Smith original instrumental funk-blues cuts, featuring Malone (guitar), McBride (bass), and Mason )drums: "8 Counts For Rita" and the title cut, "Dot Com Blues". Check 'em out. Great playing, and compositionally interesting. Jimmy Smith, from the git-go, was always more than a blues-riffing party organist. Listen to the great version of Duke Ellington's "Mood Indigo" here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz, blues and R &B make a great mix on this CD August 2, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Jimmy Smith has been coaxing soulful tunes out of the Hammond B3 organ for so long that he has truly become the standard against which others are judged. It has been a long time since I have enjoyed one of his albums, or cd's as much as this.

Original compositions such as "Dot Com Blues," "8 Counts For Rita," and "Tuition Blues" are truly excellent, and his arrangement of "C C Rider" is truly something to experience. Smith's rendition of Ellington's "Mood Indigo" is also something not to be missed!

The addition of B.B. King on guitar and vocals for "Three O'Clock Blues" makes for a collaboration which is only out done by "I Just Wanna Make Love to You" featuring an all star line-up including Etta James leading the vocals and Dr. John on electric piano. A nicely conceived and executed CD, that has a traditional blues feel and you won't get tired of hearing.
