'Cornbread'By Cornbread

Jimmy Smith – Dot Com BluesJimmy Smith – Dot Com Blues
{2000 | Verve Music Group}

Can an organ playing jazz musician play the blues? Yep! Dot Com Blues features Jimmy Smith on a Hammond B3 organ and is joined by some of the biggest names in blues: B.B. King, Etta James, Taj Mahal, Dr. John, and Keb Mo. So heck yea Smith can play the blues and on Dot Com Blues he plays the blues with the best of them, literally.

I found the CD to be uplifting and very enjoyable, this ain't no church organ. We get plenty of up-tempo organ playing, which throughout the songs seldom dominate in addition to electric guitar, slide guitar, piano and some great vocals.

Personally, I liked Etta James on 'I Just Wanna Make Love To You' and BB on 'Three O’Clock Blues'.

1. Only In It For The Money

4. CC Rider
5. I Just Wanna Make Love To You
6. Mood Indigo
7. Over & Over
8. Three O’Clock Blues
9. Dot Com Blues
10. Mr. Johnson
11. Tuition Blues

Overall, I'd rate this bluesy gem 3.8725 out of 5.

Ciao' for now, peace.
