Back when Jazz musicians played bar gigs, I saw Jimmy Smith at the Baltimore Tavern in West Philly (my buddy and I were the only two white faces in the place, but no one did or said anything to make us feel unwelcome). It was sometime in the mid-60s. The bar was a racetrack-shaped elongated oval and Smith's combo was in the middle, with his Hammond just above eye level. Being able to get that close to music that good was an unforgettable experience, but at the time we didn't know how quickly that whole scene would fade away. If I think hard, I can take myself back to that night.
