Yes, you probably confuse Dr. Lonnie Smith with Lonnie Liston Smith, as they’re both crucial cogs in the jazz-fusion continuum. Both came to prominence in the late ’60s and ’70s during soul-jazz and celestial funk’s peak years, and their head-nodding beats and atmospheric keyboard tones frequently found their way into hiphop productions via the wonders of sampling. However, you will know Dr. Lonnie Smith by his turban, his articulate, earthy Hammond B-3 organ vamps, and his swanky cover of Donovan’s “Sunshine Superman.”
