Dr. Lonnie Smith • The Art Of Organizing



Biography by Alex Henderson:
Organist Lonnie Smith has often been confused with keyboardist/pianist Lonnie Liston Smith -- and, in fact, more than a few retailers have wrongly assumed that they're one and the same. In the mid-'60s, the Hammond hero earned recognition for his membership in George Benson's classic quartet before going on to play with Lou Donaldson (contributing some memorable solos to the alto saxman's hit 1967 album Alligator Bogaloo) and recording enjoyable dates of his own for Blue Note. For all their accessibility and commercial appeal, funk-influenced Smith sessions like 1968's Think and 1970's Drives showed that he could be quite imaginative. Smith, who later became Dr. Lonnie Smith (for "no particular reason," the same reason he gives for why he always wears a traditional Sikh turban), remained an inspired representative of soul-jazz, releasing his own albums like 1993's Afro Blue and continuing his long association with Donaldson.

The 21st century saw him step up the pace, releasing several albums, including a tribute to Beck, 2003's Boogaloo to Beck; an album of reworked and modernized jazz standards, 2006's Jungle Soul; and 2009's Rise Up! Smith and his trio members -- Jonathan Kreisberg, guitar; Jamire Williams, drums -- continued a relentless and tireless touring and recording schedule; he issued Spiral in 2010 on Palmetto with Matt Balitsaris producing, followed by the live album Healer in 2012. In 2016, Smith delivered Evolution, his first album for Blue Note since 1970's Drives. Produced by Don Was, it featured guest appearances from saxophonist Joe Lovano, pianist Robert Glasper, and others. Smith enlisted Was as a producer again, this time for a trio date entitled All in My Mind. Released in January of 2018, the set included two originals, a cover of Paul Simon's "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" (featuring guest vocalist Alicia Olatuja), Wayne Shorter's "Juju," and Tadd Dameron's "On a Misty Night" in its track list.

Biografía de Alex Henderson:
El organista Lonnie Smith a menudo ha sido confundido con el teclista / pianista Lonnie Liston Smith, y, de hecho, más de unos pocos minoristas han asumido erróneamente que son lo mismo. A mediados de los años 60, el héroe de Hammond se ganó el reconocimiento por su membresía en el cuarteto clásico de George Benson antes de ir a tocar con Lou Donaldson (contribuyendo con algunos solos memorables al exitoso álbum de 1967, Alligator Bogaloo) y grabando agradables fechas propias. para Blue Note. A pesar de su accesibilidad y atractivo comercial, las sesiones de Smith influenciadas por el funk, como Think's de 1968 y Drives de 1970, demostraron que podía ser bastante imaginativo. Smith, quien más tarde se convirtió en el Dr. Lonnie Smith (por "ninguna razón en particular", la misma razón por la que siempre usa un turbante tradicional Sikh), siguió siendo un representante inspirado del soul-jazz, lanzando sus propios álbumes como Afro Blue de 1993. y continuando su larga asociación con Donaldson.

El siglo XXI lo vio aumentar el ritmo, lanzando varios álbumes, incluido un homenaje a Beck, Boogaloo to Beck de 2003; un álbum de estándares de jazz reformados y modernizados, Jungle Soul de 2006; y Rise Up 2009! Smith y sus miembros del trío - Jonathan Kreisberg, guitarra; Jamire Williams, batería: continuó un incansable e incansable programa de giras y grabaciones; emitió Spiral en 2010 en Palmetto con la producción de Matt Balitsaris, seguido del álbum en vivo Healer en 2012. En 2016, Smith presentó Evolution, su primer álbum para Blue Note desde los Drives en 1970. Producido por Don Was, contó con la participación de invitados del saxofonista Joe Lovano, el pianista Robert Glasper y otros. Smith se alistó nuevamente como productor, esta vez para una fecha de trío titulada All in My Mind. Lanzado en enero de 2018, el set incluye dos originales, una versión de "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" de Paul Simon (con la vocalista invitada Alicia Olatuja), "Juju" de Wayne Shorter y "On a Misty Night" de Tadd Dameron en su lista de canciones
