Dr. Lonnie Smith Trio

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm nightly:

“Jazz is American Classical,” declares Dr. Lonnie Smith, “and this music is a reflection of what’s hap­pening at the time. The organ is like the sunlight, rain and thunder – it’s all the worldly sounds to me!” An authentic master and guru of the Hammond B–3 for over five decades, the Doctor has been featured on over seventy albums, and has recorded and performed with a virtual “Who’s Who” of jazz, blues and R&B giants. He’s performed on our stage with a quartet, octet, and big band, but this two–part engage­ment begins with three nights of music by his seasoned trio featuring guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg and drummer Johnathan Blake. “Lonnie Smith is still at the top of his game,” wrote Greg Boraman for the website of the BBC. “His blues are powerful without being mawkish, his jazz adept and tasteful, his funk chops always an example to others.”
