Lonnie Liston Smith
Profil:
Not to be confused with jazz organist/pianist Lonnie Smith , Lonnie Liston Smith was born 28th December, 1940 in Richmond, Virginia, U.S.A. He was introduced to music at an early age by his father, and learned piano, tuba, trumpet and voice in high school and college. After graduating from Baltimore's Morgan State College with a Bachelor of Science degree in music education, he soon launched himself into performance, working with the house band at the Royal Theater, Baltimore. He moved to New York and nurtured his talent with jazz greats like Art Blakey and Miles Davis, moving from acoustic jazz to fusion, before forming his own group Lonnie Liston Smith And The Cosmic Echoes in 1973. He is renowned for defying genres, blending atmospheric fusion, soul and funk and is often quoted as a strong influence on acid jazz. He is still writing and touring.

Reviewing any individual LLS album misses the point a bit, so I will make my remarks here. All of his albums are similar. Certainly there is some evolution: the early ones are funkier; the mid-period albums contain more elements of disco; and the later ones are further streamlined to reflect 80s production and sound. But they're all deep acidjazz/chillout/makeout music made well before those terms existed.

My favourites are the Columbia albums from 1978 to 1980. They're the grooviest and most melodic. Some of the pre-Columbia records are extremely mellow and pleasant, almost to the point of sleep-inducing -- though all of them are good. The later, more rare albums are less consistent in quality, but still mostly good.
