If you've never heard of Jimmy Smith the great jazz organ player than you're probably like most people alive today, but he's considered one of the best to have ever touched the keys and according to this concert preview from a July 1988 issue of New Times, he did it at Studio 183 in Carol City.

Studio 183 is mostly remembered for hip-hop shows and rave parties, but apparently they weren't above hosting a jazz night too, and who knows what else. Seriously, anyone out there remember this place and an event they went to? Leave a comment if you do. Long live Jimmy Smith.
