That's for Sure

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Best known as Erskine Hawkins' altoist from 1944-60 and for penning the Hawkins hit "Tippin' In," Bobby Smith led a fine series of recordings for the United label during 1949-54. This 1996 CD has his 22 selections seven previously unreleased, which range in style from Johnny Hodges-type jump swing to early R&B, blues and ballads. With strong contributions from Bobby Johnson and Jimmy Harris on trumpets and baritonist Haywood Henry, Smith performs concise three-minute numbers that are accessible, reasonably creative within their boundaries, and quite fun. Recommended.
