Dr Lonnie Smith

Julian Joseph presents a set played at the 2010 Glasgow International Jazz Festival by Hammond organ great Dr Lonnie Smith, featuring Jonathan Kreisburg and Jamire Williams.

Jazz Line-Up this week features one of the great Hammond Organ heroes of all time, Dr Lonnie Smith. Recorded at this year's Glasgow International Jazz Festival, Dr Smith with his guitarist, Jonathan Kreisburg and drummer, Jamire Williams with tracks from his current CD Spiral and demonstrates how the Hammond can groove in either pianissimo or triple forte.

Dr .Lonnie has recorded and performed with Randy Brecker, John Abercrombie,, Ronnie Cuber, Kenny Garrett, Lenny White, Reuben Wilson, Lee Morgan, David 'Fat Head' Newman, King Curtis, Blue Mitchell, Joe Lovano, Jimmy McGriff, Frank Foster, Ron Carter, Grover Washington, Jr., Dizzy Gillespie.

This Concert demonstrates that Dr Lonnie (and his vocalise) grooves through the repertoire and with his left foot provides the walking bass line (a technique often missed out by organists).
