James Taylor Quartet/Royal Academy Big Band: Tribute to Jimmy Smith

Music, Jazz
The B-3 bashing Hammond maestro may have been around longer than most with his 'Starsky and Hutch'-theme tune, but his recent resurgent form shows this old dog still has plenty of new tricks to share. These include expansive flute/trumpet arrangements full of warm Donald Bird-style jazz-funk. Here for an epic four night stand – complete with a punchy horn section led by trumpeter Smart, and Yanney's soulful vocals – things close on Sunday with full-blooded tribute to Hammond-hero Jimmy Smith complete with big band.
