Have You Heard - Johnny Smith

Have You Heard
Johnny Smith
Arrow LP 1200

From Billboard - June 23, 1958: Arrow Records will issue its first LP shortly. The set will feature organist Johnny Smith...

From the back cover: He (Smith) hails from the mid-west where in the small club and cocktail lounge circuit of Ohio And Michigan he has been able to both please the listeners and develop a highly distinctive style that continues to win followers for him. Chris Columbo who drummed with Bill Davis organ-led trio immediately sought out Johnny Smith when he cut away from his own group. Johnny was a perfect fit for the new-formed group and soon was being rated as an important find for jazzdom's organ ranks.
