Review: Peterson wisely resists the temptation to generate excitement by going for fast tempos, instead letting the bounce and shuffle of the rhythm section do the work. Plus, he is a soulful singer. Some of the tracks feature guest contributions, including Archie Shepp. Taken all in all this well-executed CD is both a great tribute to Jimmy Smith and a reminder of how organ jazz is one of the distinctive sub-genres of this music, combining some of the shake and rattle of rock & roll with the grunt of blues and the dexterity of jazz.
