Movie Notes - Jimmy Smith

I'm certainly not the first to share this documentary, uploaded three years ago, about organ giant Jimmy Smith during a 1965 tour of Europe.  Smith's trio at the time (Quentin Warren, Billy Hart) were joined by a West German film crew for much of the tour.  Although the documentary is in German, much of the dialogue is in English, and, of course, music needs no translation.  Nor does Smith's temper.  Keep an eye out for Dizzy Gillespie and his quintet, too.  Marc (JazzWax) Myers brought it to my attention a while back.
