I'm Movin' On

I'm Movin' On is an album by American jazz organist Jimmy Smith featuring performances recorded in 1963, but not released on the Blue Note label until 1967.[1] It was rereleased on CD with two bonus tracks from the same session.


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars stating "the music is fairly typical of a Jimmy Smith session with the repertoire including blues, a couple of standards and ballads. The solos are well-played but nothing too surprising occurs".[2]
