Dr. Lonnie Smith is a musician, composer, performer and recording artist. An authentic master of organ trio dynamics (especially on his Hammond B-3 organ), Dr. Smith’s performances are well known for slipping between funky soul-jazz and gentle balladry, with all kinds of musical byways in between. After more than five decades of being in the music game, he has been featured on more than 70 albums, and has recorded and performed with a virtual “Who’s Who” of the greatest jazz, blues and R&B giants in the industry. Jazz Times magazine described him as “a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a turban!” Always ahead of the curve, it is no surprise Dr. Smith’s fan-base is truly worldwide.
