White Hot Stamper

Jimmy Smith & Wes Montgomery
The Dynamic Duo

  (Item #: smithdynam_1907_11) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • With KILLER Triple Plus (A+++) grades or very close to them on both sides, this is a wonderful vintage stereo pressing of a classic jazz collaboration from 1966
  • Big, rich and lively, thanks to Oliver Nelson's arrangements (and RVG's engineering), this big group of top players is having a blast and we think you will too
  • 5 stars: "The romping, aggressive big band charts [represent] Oliver Nelson at his best... The results are incendiary -- a near-ideal meeting of yin and yang... They are an amazing pair, complementing each other, driving each other, using their bop and blues taproots to fuse together a sound."

Jimmy Smith
Back at the Chicken Shack

  (Item #: smithbacka_2003) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • Back at the Chicken Shack makes its Hot Stamper debut here with Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound or close to it on this New York label mono pressing
  • Joining Jimmy Smith is one of our favorite bluesy sax players, Stanley Turrentine - just play Kenny Burrell's Midnight Blue to hear him at this best, and Burrell is especially good here too
  • Credit must go to Rudy Van Gelder once again for the huge space this superbly well-recorded quartet occupies
  • 5 stars: "Recorded in 1960 with Kenny Burrell on guitar, Donald Bailey on drums, and Turrentine, the group reaches the peak of funky soul jazz that all other challengers of the genre would have to live up to."

White Hot Stamper

Jimmy Smith
Hobo Flats

  (Item #: smithhobof_1806_7_02) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • Incredible Shootout Winning Triple Plus (A+++) sound from the first note to the last
  • Both sides are wonderfully big, rich and LIVELY, with boatloads of Tubey Magic and the kind of three-dimensional space that's a hallmark of Bob Simpson's engineering
  • "Smith bubbles and bounces through all of it at the B-3 while Nelson proceeds to fill every available corner with huge, sweeping orchestral washes and crescendos. The clear highlight, though, is the lead and title track, "Hobo Flats," which moves at a languid but wonderfully funky pace and establishes a groove as wide as the Mississippi River."

  • Insanely good Triple Plus (A+++) sound or very close it on both sides and one of the best copies from our most recent shootout
  • If you dig Oliver's Nelson's swingin' BIG BRASS as much as we do you are in for a treat with this stereo pressing
  • The best sides have the kind of analog richness, warmth, and smoothness that make listening to records so involving
  • Slaughter On Tenth Avenue is the monster track leading off here, and it swings the way Walk on the Wild Side does - like crazy, man!

Jimmy Smith

Our Price: $49.99

  • If you choose to only own one Jimmy Smith album, make it this one - the first side swings like you will not believe
  • A Five Star album on Allmusic: "On the first half of the program, Smith was for the first time joined by a big band. Oliver Nelson provided the arrangements, trumpeter Joe Newman and altoist Phil Woods have a solo apiece, and "Walk on the Wild Side" became Smith's biggest hit up to that point."

Jimmy Smith - Any Number Can Win

Reviewed in 2010

  (Item #: smithanynu_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This is one of Rudy Van Gelder’s TRIUMPHS and one of the best Jimmy Smith album I’ve ever heard. All of side one and the last cut of side two sound STUNNING! This is dynamic, big speaker sound.

Jimmy Smith - Bashin'

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: smithbashi_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

Bashin' is back after a two and a half year hiatus, and it's back with a vengence -- both sides here are Super Hot, with some of the best sound we have ever heard for the album. In the past we've complained about "Rudy Van Gelder’s somewhat over the top echo-drenched brass", but on a copy such as this there is nothing to complain about!

Jimmy Smith - Christmas Cookin’

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: smithchris_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This HOT STAMPER copy of the swingingest Christmas record ever made has SWINGING SOUND to match. It's relaxed and musical, with lovely 3D openness.

Mostly gone is the dull, smeary blare of RVG's horns, replaced by real leading edge transients and air going through brass, while mostly avoiding the grit and grain that all too often passes for detail. Good extension on both ends helps a lot. Harmonics up top keep the sound open and airy, and plenty of bottom end lets the solid rhythm section come through the mix like gangbusters.

Jimmy Smith - Got My Mojo Workin’

Reviewed in 2010

  (Item #: smithgotmy_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

Verve LP with RVG Stampers and very good sound. This album has that analog richness, warmth and smoothness that we prize so highly here at Better Records. Jimmy does some pop tunes, some Ellington and more on this one, which has a real funky feel to it, with Jimmy really getting into it and grunting along with the music in places.
