Jimmy Jive minus drums – Play Along Tunes (PKA PlayAlongJazz)

Jimmy Jive minus drums

From the Steve Smith and Vital Information recording Vitalization, this is the track Jimmy Jive.  This track features Tom Coster on keyboards, bassist Baron Browne and Vinny Valentino on guitar.

Upon close listening, you’ll notice that the aptly titled “Groove
Time” and “Jimmy Jive” are the same tune, written by Tom Coster, with two contrasting treatments. For “Groove Time” the band incorporates some Washington, DC “Go-Go” rhythms into the arrangement and for “Jimmy Jive” the band embraces a greasy Jimmy Smith approach. Tom dedicates the latter version to the late B3 master.
