Join us for the last concert of the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra's 25th Season! The history of jazz is made up of innovators who shook up, redefined and explored the limits of jazz. In a nod to one of the great pioneers of jazz, the SJMO, with special guest Charles Covington, will present the music of the great Jimmy Smith (1925-2005).
An NEA Jazz Master, Smith’s chosen instrument, a Hammond B3 organ, was rarely if ever used in early jazz, but through his unparalleled work and talent, he single-handedly popularized the instrument and its unique sound.
