    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    The music world lost a great one Tuesday afternoon, folks. Jimmy Smith was one of my favorite jazz and jazz-funk musicians and he was a true legend on the hammond organ. His recordings with Wes Montgomery as well as his 70s jazz stuff remain some of my favorite stuff to this day.

    RIP, Jimmy!
