Bought the Jimmy Smith Retrospective last night,
man, I forgot how good he was!

4 CD set on Blue Note

From a review on Amazon.com:

4 CD's remastered by Ron McMaster, with the best of Jimmy Smith at Blue Note records, from his first session up to his very last session in the 80's.
Specially worthy are the first 2 CD's including a bunch of material that is out of print, including Jimmy's first albums. I am really happy overall with the track selection, I'd probably change one or two: 'Flamingo' is really a Lee Morgan feature, and the albums 'Cool Blues' and 'Six views of the blues' are not represented here'; but this still is the definitive Jimmy Smith compilation.

Booklet includes session details and essay on the tracks that are included here. Pricey, but it is worth your money.

Thanks for the tip. In addition to my digital piano, I have a Hammond C3 (same as a B3 except for furniture) so I love this sound. Jimmy Smith is pretty much the standard by which jazz organists must be measured. Since he's gone, I'm glad to see this compilation released.
