royalty

RIP Jimmy Smith, the king of the Hammond organ. While I'm not particularly into jazz, as a keyboard player, I can only say that Jimmy Smith was unique and dazzling. He will never be replaced. Thanks, Jimmy. Even we rock players owe you a debt of gratitude for expanding the boundaries and giving us new musical vocabulary to use.
