Johnny Hammond Real Name: John Robert Smith. Hammond recorded five jazz-funk albums over the next three years, including Breakout, Wild Horses/Rock Steady, and the Mizell Brothers-helmed Gambler's Life

Gambler's Life (Salvation/CTI SAL-702, 1974; reissued on Soul Brother Records in 2001). Gears (Milestone M-9062, 1975; reissued on BGP/Ace in 1992). Forever Taurus (Milestone M-9068, 1976; reissued on BGP/Ace in 1992). The Best Of Johnny "Hammond" Smith For Lovers (Prestige PR 7777, 1970). Talk That Talk (Prestige, 1995) (compilation of Talk That Talk + Gettin' The Message). That Good Feelin' (Prestige, 1996) (compilation of All Soul + That Good Feelin'). Legends Of Acid Jazz: Johnny "Hammond" Smith (Prestige, 1996) (compilation of Soul Talk + Black Feeling!) Black Coffee (Milestone, 1997) (compilation of Black Coffee + Mr. Wonderful).

Gambler's Life, the first of two Johnny "Hammond" Smith albums featuring the brothers' ambitious handiwork, isn't an exception. Watch a purist seek shelter in his dank cave whenever this album is within earshot. Smith switches to Fender Rhodes for most of the material, and the Mizells bring their ARPs, spirited if unpolished group vocal arrangements, wah-wah guitars, and soaring instrumental arrangements made to shine on the dancefloor. Strong throughout, the album runs as efficiently and as sweetly as any other groove-heavy album of its time.

Back to the Projects is such a dope ass song. Just discovered it and cant wait to listen to it a million more times
Thorgaginn
'Gamblers life' is good, no question, but not as good as 'Gears'
Ynap
I had to double check that there were no comments or reviews of this astounding work of genius! Anyone even remotely interested in Hammond or Mizell bros. must own this. Something magic happened here. "Star Borne" and "Back to the Projects" are two of the best jazz fusion jams in existence. My favorite Hammond record as a label to label experience. Yes, I prefer it to the over-heralded _Gears_, which once you take away the two hits, you have less of an overall experience than you do with this record.
Gavinrage
Agreed, Gambler's Life is just a step above Gear's. Love the Mizell Brothers.
Kupidon
I agree that this record is incredible, but it is not better than "Gears". Taking away tracks is not allowed.
