Morning Song – Step One

January 4, 2016

Maybe it’s something about the name, Jimmy. Or maybe it’s simply that the two Jimmys, Smith and McGriff, were childhood friends. Or maybe there was something in the air around Philadelphia.  Whatever the reason, Jimmy McGriff joined Jimmy Smith as one of the great artists on (and popularizers of) the Hammond B-3 organ in the mid-20th century.

Here’s McGriff with an appropriate—and appropriately jazzy, funky, soulful and upbeat—song for starting off the new year: “Step One”. (Take that step and the next step becomes possible, and the next, and the next….)
