Spanning over three decades, Chicago vibist Paris Smith released privately three albums through his own imprint Oracle records. In the seventies The Quartets album with Kenneth Hill, In the early 80s Thought Seeds with vocalist Carol Sawall and in the mid-90s 53 Street Ghost with full ensemble. All material is self written, the mood, style and feel of three albums are uniquely different. Ranging from full-blown post-bop to soul-jazz slap.

The 96 album 53rd St. Ghost gets the vinyl treatment for the first time, previously only available on CD.

53rd Street Ghost features a larger ensemble. Paris Smith vibraphone, Ben Montgomery drums David “Dawi” Williams bass, Shelton “Saleem” Salley guitar, Carol Sawall vocals & percussion, Charles “Yapree” Howell piano andStephanie Florence percussion. The album lays the vibes of the 90s Chicago scene with a great batch of funky jazz tracks, whether it’s the latin tingled ‘Psalm 37′ or the atmospheric ‘The Fun of it All’.

With this reissue by Jazzaggression Record, this album has been carefully remastered, comes with new pictures original liners and new liner notes by Paris Smith. Cover illustrations drawn by Carol Sawall. Each album is limited to 500 copies. - Jazzaggression Records
