Verve's Finest Hour collection of Jimmy Smith's work compiles 60 minutes of career highlights, including "Walk on the Wild Side," "Got My Mojo Workin'," "James and Wes," and "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag." Though it's by no means a definitive compilation of Smith's music, it does provide an entertaining overview of some of his funkiest moments. ~ Heather Phares
