Format: Audio CD
"Open House/Plain Talk" is a jam session in the best possible way. The eight songs all recorded on March 22, 1960 (but originally released over two albums) range from untempo bop grooves to smoldering ballads, and they're all played with fire and passion. Smith's band (a sextet!) for this set is stellar as well with Blue Mitchell, Ike Quebec and Jackie McLean on the frontline (though they sit out at times), Quentin Warren on guitar, and Smith regular Donald Bailey on drums. The title tracks from each album, both penned by Smith, are particularly strong, but there are some great standards too, most notably the ballad "My One and Only Love" which boasts a brilliant Blue Mitchell solo. In all, these two albums would be among Smith's strongest if they were separate, together they're a must buy.

Great Jimmy Smith sessions with 2 outstanding sax men, Ike Quebec and Jackie McLean. Content is 4 or 5 stars but the sound quality is 1 star, terribly distorted (microphone stage overload) on most of the horn work. This must be the reason this one has never been given the RVG treatment. Too bad.

No matter what you say about the recording, this is a great CD, in part because it's actually two albums with Jimmy, Blue Mitchell, Ike Quebec, Jackie McLean, etc. in top notch form. If you can imagine all four together you should buy this CD. This is jazz, not one of Jimmy's commercial endeavors with strings or heavily arranged albums, although Ike really knows (knew)what he is doing in that department and probably gave Jimmy lots of pointers. With Ike around, nobody could give a halfhearted attempt and still keep face, as he was a mature pro who had paid his dues. If you do not know Ike or Jackie, this is a accessible place to begin.
