Jimmy Smith ruled the Hammond organ in the 1950s and 1960s. He revolutionized the instrument and popularized it in the process, turning the fusion of R & B, blues, gospel, and jazz into a jubilant, attractive sound. He found his perfect foil in the fluid guitar lines of Wes Montgomery, one of the greatest and most influential jazz guitarists ever.
