Dr. Lonnie Smith Organ Trio
Dr. Lonnie Smith Organ Trio
For more than fifty years, Buffalo native and Hammond B3 Organ master Dr. Lonnie Smith has recorded and performed with the greatest jazz, blues and R&B artists including formative stints in bands led by guitarist George Benson and saxophonist Lou Donaldson which led to gold records such as "Alligator Boogaloo" and "Finger Lickin’ Good" for the Blue Note and Columbia Record labels. Jazz Times Magazine called Lonnie “a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a turban!” for the unpredictable musical taste that led him to record everything from Beatles, Stylistics and Eurythmics covers to Jimi Hendrix, John Coltrane and Beck tributes with ensembles ranging from a trio to a fifteen-piece big band. More recently, Dr. Lonnie has been sampled in rap, dance and house grooves and credited as a forefather of acid jazz.
