By Dr.D.Treharne on April 5, 2004
Format: Audio CD
What has always astounded me about this album is the fact that it was the fourth album in just over a week that Smith cut for Blue Note. He was anxious to move to Verve, to take advantage of the bigger recording budgets that they were offering, and so he dashed off this excellent album to complete the contractural obligation he had.Considering this,it's excellent with several quite outstanding tracks. Turrentine was an excellent foil for Smith's playing style and the versions of Ivory Joe Hunter's "I almost lost my mind" and his own "Picnickin'" are absolutely essential. However the real killer track is the title "Prayer meetin". Donald Bailey provides the low key drum work throughout this session, with some excellent contributions and tasty fills from Quentin Warren on guitar, who had already worked with Smith on two previous albums. Somehow even a version of "When the Saints" is bearable, though "Stone Cold in the Market" might have substituted the final word with "Water". However the two bonus tracks more than compensate. They're from a session in 1960, with both the front men in good form, and Kenny Burrell filling the guitar berth.What also marks them out is it's the only two released Blue Note tracks on which Smith abandoned his pedal work in favour of a bass player, in this case Sam Jones. It works well.The remastered sound is excellent, and at a budget price it's good to have this one available again!

The title cut is the epitome of organ combo blues, with a delightfully swinging tempo and first-rate solo work by all parties. Funky, upbeat, and infectious.

The collection suffers from the inclusion of "Stone Cold Dead" and "Saints," which merits the deletion of a star for each one. However, the rest of the songs, notably "I Almost Lost My Mind," find all players in top-notch form, with the appropriate mood and dynamicsrequired for each individual selection; therefore, I only deleted one star for both.

Buy this CD; you will listen to it over and over again! However, program your player to skip "Stone Cold Dead" and "Saints".

Unlike most of the recent RVG releases (...), Jimmy Smith's classic "Prayer Meetin" has been readily available for years, but this remastered reissue is a welcome addition to the Blue Note catalog nonetheless. Of Smith's numerous studio albums for the label, "Prayer Meetin," along with "The Sermon" and "Open House/Plain Talk" (see my reviews), have always been my favorites. The organist is in top form on this February 8, 1963 session (which also includes Quentin Warren on guitar and Donald Bailey on drums), but it is the contribution of tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, delivering one of his best performances for the label, which makes this album so great. Stanley led several of his own organ combos as a leader, but never did they match the heights obtained on this title. Added to the original LP (but also available on the first CD incarnation) are two bonus tracks, "Lonesome Road" and "Smith Walk," from a June 13, 1960 session with the same personnel plus bassist Sam Jones. Get ready for a very sacred "Prayer Meetin!"

I think we jazz lovers are all guilty, at times, of using jazz as background music - letting one's brain wander onto other things while songs play in the background. This, folks, is an album that should never be reduced to background music. Jimmy Smith and Stanley Turrentine are both exquisite soloists, and both are at their most melodic on this record (Smith plays a bit more sparingly on this album than he often does). While Donald Bailey (dr) and Quentin Warren are relegated to supporting roles (the only soloists are Turrentine and Smith), they do a great job, especially following Turrentine and Smith's dynamics changes and cues).

The songs here are pure soul. Prayer Meetin' is a roadhouse style 12-bar blues with a wickedly soulful guitar riff. When the Saints Go Marching In is pure energetic gospel, and Smith's syncopated solo is probably worth the price of the album. I Almost Lost My Mind is a beautiful slow, sensitive blues. The album is pure soul from start to finish (even the strange latin feel of Stone Cold Dead in the Market has soul to it!).

I've had this album for precisely three days and I've listened to it precisely three times, and I have to imagine that this will work itself into my "favorite albums" list. Please, no background music here. This here is foreground music.
