Sponsored by 88.5 KPLU
December 15, 7 p.m.
Northwest Film Forum, Seattle
Years before being sampled by the Beastie Boys, Jimmy Smith's bebop-blues mastery of the Hammond B3 electric organ and Leslie speaker was caught in a tour documentary made for German TV in 1965. The look is black-and-white grainy, the sound is birthing acid fusion. With Billy Hart on drums and Quentin Warren on guitar.
