Dr. Lonnie Smith

  • His Sound: armed with his signature Hammond B3 organ, the good doctor and his trio deliver soulful, propulsive jazz that’s heavy on the grooves and solos; Jazz Times describes him as “a phenomenal B3 burner who can light up a room with visceral intensity or lay down some of the nastiest funk ever played on an organ.”
  • For Fans Of: George Benson, Lou Donaldson, and Grover Washington, Jr. (all of whom Smith has played with), plus fellow soul-jazz organists such as Big John Patton, Jimmy Smith, and Jimmy McGriff
  • Where to Begin: Check out Lonnie’s 1967 solo album, Finger Lickin’ Good, his Blue Note debut, Think!, and his latest album, The Healer, and you’ll understand why he was named the ”Organ Keyboardist of the Year” five times by the Jazz Journalist Association
