Dr. Lonnie Smith Trio – Jazz Standard $20

The turbaned Hammond B3-professor, Dr. Lonnie Smith, not to be confused with the equally bad ass Lonnie Liston Smith, is back at it tonight until Sunday at the jazz standard. While his music isn’t quite as unusual as his personal appearance, and his improvisations aren’t as involved as other B3-masters named Jimmy, Dr. Smith possesses a distinctly funky and fluid touch. In addition to all kinds of amazing collaborations particularly with Lou Donaldson, his late-1960s/early-1970s Blue Note sides are undeniable soul jazz classics that are very easy to groove to and absorb. I imagine it’ll be as refreshing as a tall cold gin and tonic on hot summer day like this one.
