Dr. Lonnie Smith

Dr. Lonnie Smith is back. And in a big way. In the musical environment and with the production values that he deserves.

At 73, Smith is one of the few remaining innovators/popularizers of the jazz organ, from the time when Hammond B-3 trios and quartets traveled mostly through the Midwest nightclub circuit. Smith is as powerful and youthful as ever. Rather than imitating B-3 jazz icon Jimmy Smith, Dr. Lonnie Smith always projected his own personality through his music.
