Stay Loose by Jimmy Smith
Released: Jul 1968
You wouldn't want to listen to Smith's gritty, groaning, blues'n'whiskey soaked vocals on a ballad set, but they work well on upbeat party tracks (especially on the title cut). As usual, this did well on the R&B and jazz charts, but it didn't sell as well as his instrumental albums (score one for jazz), meaning the public preferred his playing to his guttural seal barks.
