Jimmie Smith Life and Times

Jimmie Lee Smith, affectionately known as Big Jim or Jimmie Lee, was born on July 3, 1941, in the Newtown Community of Union Springs, AL, to the late Daisy Lindsey and Jim Smith. Following his mother's early passing, he was lovingly raised by his step-mother, the late Armillar Smith, alongside his father.
