"You try to combine all these things, put them in the Music: the beautiful harmonies, the colors & also the rhythm, because they’re part of it!", said to me Lonnie Liston Smith few years ago about the spectacular 'Colors Of The Rainbow' (1975). The delicious blend of electric Fender Rhodes piano & Lonnie's brother Donald Smith vocals was conceived as a 'Save-The-Nature' anthem in a time when very few people would pay attention to the matter. The sound experience, gorgeous as the album itself, naturally achieved the position of "all time influential". 'Visions Of A New World's title tune also carried a warning message from the depths of the Cold War in the mid 70s: "It’s always been that way, I mean, the verge of conflicts, nuclear threats, etc. So, the ‘Visions Of A New World’ meant a World of Peace, without greed, without wars."
