A Little Taste is an album by jazz organist Johnny "Hammond" Smith which was recorded in 1963 and released on the Riverside label.



The Allmusic site awarded the album 3 stars and its review by Richie Unterberger calls it "a sturdy quartet date... There's more of a straight jazz (as opposed to soul-jazz) influence on this than on some other Smith sessions of the time".
