Belated RIP "Dr" Lonnie Smith
« on: October 09, 2021, 03:49:19 PM »
Completely missed this on from September 29th:
"Lonnie Smith, a master of the Hammond B3 organ and a leading exponent of the infectiously rhythmic genre known as soul jazz, died on Tuesday at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He was 79."

Was fortunate to see his set once years ago at a small jazz club here...

A sad loss. I read the news but forgot to post them here. RIP
