[TRANSCENDENT JAZZ FUNK] God flows through Lonnie Smith’s fingers. That’s a poetic way of saying the dude plays some of the funkiest organ on the planet. Although known primarily in jazz circles—his career dovetailed with those of Lou Donaldson and George Benson, as well as Miles’ and Coltrane’s, and his most famous albums came out on Blue Note in the ’60s—his eclectic discography ranges from gritty funk workouts to Afro-Latin grooves to psychedelic head trips. In 2012, the good Doctor launched his own record label, Pilgrimage Productions, and Kickstarted a live-in-the-studio project featuring a septet of talented young musicians, delivering a fiery, near-spiritual performance, his Hammond B3 now practically an extra appendage. “The organ ain’t nothing,” Smith told me last year on the eve of his 70th birthday. “It don’t breathe until I breathe.”
