Gabriel Dumets said on 1969 about it:
"Mr. Smith's Sermon

Pleyel Hall, chapel for a night , filled with a large flock come to celebrate REVEREND Smith's return. Immediately dismissing the Oohs and Ahs, the PASTOR cuts short the welcome. From the start, his SERMON is fired up, the message is both affectionate aned seductive. CONTENTEDLY, THE EVANGEWLIST SMILES TO THE ANGELS...."

The sound is superb.
Here Jimmy plays as never in the other records.
So if you have all Jimmy cds except this, you loose an important face of this jazz organist, that you don't know yet !!!

Enjoy them !!!!
