Jimmy Smith's output for Blue Note was pretty consistent. My favorite is probably Midnight Special. His work on Verve sometimes got a little cheesy.
I agree with the above, the Blue Note lps fom the 1950s and 60s are exceptional. I would also recommend "Back At The Chicken Shack", "The Sermon", "Prayer Meeting" and two of my all time favorites with Stanley Turrentine, Grady Tate and Kenny Burrell, "Formost" and "Foremost Returns" and of course "Dot Com Blues" from 2001 was a killer.
Yeah I also agree that the Blue Note releases are his most
consistent. "Groovin' at Small's Paradise" is a great live
2-CD set. The Rudy Van Gelder remaster is terrific.
"Angel Eyes" on Polygram is one his better later releases
from 1995 with great supporting cast most notably Roy Hargrove
and Christian McBride.
And of course "Dot Com Blues" but I like "Angel Eyes" better.
