Jimmy Smith boasts an incredible 90-minute concert from 1969 filmed in Paris. Working in his classic trio format (with longtime guitarist Eddie McFadden and drummer Charlie Crosby), Jimmy shows why he is still the uncontested king of the jazz organ. Highlights include blues jams ‘Got My Mojo Working’ and ‘Sonnymoon For Two,’ the classic ballads ‘Alfie’ and ‘Satin Doll,’ as well as a blinding 23-minute version of his showcase number ‘The Sermon.’ – Amazon

Confiding // Complete Strangers // Vetiver

After a 3-year gap since their last album, SF-based indie-folk group Vetiver released their new LP Complete Strangers, including this track titled “Confiding”. Lead singer/songwriter Andy Cabic remarked about the album’s songs:

“They share things in common but come from different places, different times… As with many of Vetiver’s better moments, sunshine is only a chord away from melancholy. An introspective lyric underlies an extroverted chorus. Subtlety tries to be outgoing, loneliness familiar, in an effort to connect the dots of life’s ellipsis.” –Andy Cabic of Vetiver
