    Jimmy Smith - The Sermon Sound - Bar 6?

    Hi,

    I've always loved this classic tune; "The Sermon" by Jimmy Smith. One thing I've never been able to figure out is there's a unique sound in bar six. It's almost like a growl. Does anyone know what that sound is? Is it Jimmy breathing, growling, does he make that sound with the organ, and if so how does he do it?

    Thanks,

    Johnny B.

    So, I don't feed too bad. 49 of you looked at my post and it seems like no one knows! Here's a link to the version I'm referring to on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3X5J_wGHrw

    Thanks
