It was not long after guitarist Tom Dempsey's first exposure to jazz guitar (Wes Montgomery's Smokin' at the Half Note) that led him to Smith's recordings and Wes Montgomery and later the classic Jimmy Smith recordings with Kenny Burrell. This is music that has been a crucial part of his music especially since moving to New York City in 1991. It informs Dempsey's organ trio recording, Saucy (Planet Arts), with Ron Oswanski on organ and Alvin Atkinson on drums.
I received my review copy from a publicist. Here is a clip of Tom in performance (not an organ trio though).
