Home Cookin' [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
This Japanese import contains a 24-bit remastering of Jimmy Smith's organ Blue Note era release Home Cookin' 1959.

They continue their spirited chiding on the brisk interpretation of Ray Charles' "I Got a Woman." The refined visage should not be mistaken for an average or rote performance. On the contrary, Bailey's solid backbeat provides the perfect setting with every beat well placed. Ironically, just as the combo establishes a free-flowing exchange, alas the song fades out. France is front and center on both "Messin' Around" and "Gracie," supplying a notable dimension of texture and presence to the ensemble.
