An unparalleled musician, composer, performer and recording artist.
Born in Buffalo, New York, Lonnie was blessed with the gift of music. Through his mother, he was immersed in gospel, blues and jazz at an early age.
An authentic master and guru of the Hammond B-3 organ for over five decades, he has featured on over seventy albums, and has recorded and performed with a virtual “Who’s Who” of the greatest jazz, blues and R&B giants in the industry. Consequently, he has often been hailed as a “Legend,” a “Living Musical Icon,” and as the most creative jazz organist by a slew of music publications. Jazz Times magazine describes 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.
If you haven’t heard the Dr. you will definitely love his style and it will make you feel good! He definitely is a healer!
And now see him playing with his new Hammond toy:
I hope you dig it!
