Jazz Organ Stories: Jimmy Smith
The days of the old organ rooms might be gone, but the authentic Hammond organ sound (with the infamous Leslie tone cabinet) lives on in the nineties. Whether it's from the real source or a sampled, technological effort, the resurgence of this original sound is unstoppable. Credit should go where credit is due, and I, for one, think forty years of sermonizing deserves a hearty amen!
