Kentucky-born John Robert Smith (1933-1997) was one of a handful of jazz musicians who was nicknamed after his instrument -- in this case the Hammond organ. Smith chose the moniker to distinguish himself from jazz guitarist Johnny Smith and the more well-known organist Jimmy Smith.
Johnny "Hammond Smith" recorded a mittful of well-received soul-jazz albums for Prestige between 1959 and 1970, including a 1967 release that was originally titled Gettin' Up.
When a track from it, Ebb Tide, started getting DJ and jukebox play the title of the LP was changed to match the single.
The MP3 is taken from the 45.
Accompanying Smith on Ebb Tide are trumpeter Virgil Jones, saxophonist Houston Person, guitarist Thornel Schwartz (who played on many of Jimmy Smith's Blue Note recordings), Jimmy Lewis on bass guitar and John Harris on drums.
In 2000, the Ebb Tide LP was combined with a 1968 date, Nasty, on a Prestige CD called The Soulful Blues.
This album is easily obtainable either on disc or as a download. A used CD can be had for as little as $6.00.
Here's another track from the Gettin' Up/Ebb Tide LP, Stand By Me. This was also the flip side of the Ebb Tide single. Thanks to Groove Addict for the YouTube video.
