Tales from the far Side 08.02.18 Hammond B3 Organ master Jimmy Smith and his influence today

On this edition I pay tribute to the legendary Hammond B3 master Jimmy Smith on the 13th Anniversary of his passing and you can also hear some of the great modern Contemporary Jazz organ players deeply influenced by Smith as the pioneering force, with music by Joey DeFrancesco, Larry Goldings and Mike LeDonne.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
