4.0 out of 5 stars The smooth side of Lonnie Smith May 11, 2011
Format:Audio CD
In 1976, Lonnie Smith was hit musically by the global wave of disco, funk and soul music, which resulted in three smooth albums released on the Groove Merchant label. Like many other jazz organists of the time (Jimmy McGriff, Johnny "Hammond" Smith and Charles Earland to name a few), Lonnie Smith adapted to the new contemporary musical sound and expressions, which was a great disadvantage to the past popular Hammond organ sound. Basically the Hammond organ sound was out of fashion. For many jazz organists the Hammond organ remained in the background or most probably left out while electric piano and synthesizers became the dominant sound.

"Gotcha" (1978 LRC/Groove Merchant) displays the other side of Lonnie Smith, the smooth jazz side. Funky rhytms, disco beats, soul vocals, smooth horn section, heavy strings and groovy electric bass lines were the new dance recipes to boost album sales. The inventive Blue Note albums organ work delivered from Lonnie Smith before signing the Groove Merchant label is now history (until his jazz organ revival in 1991), but to be frank he tastefully use Hammond B-3 organ cleverly on a few tunes, particularly the opening tune "Sweet Honey Wine" and "Journey to Within". Lonnie Smith is an excellent singer with a great soul voice; the wonderful tune "I Need Your Love", "Funk Reaction" and "What's Done Is Done" proves his passion for ballads and funky disco vocals articulated. Remaining tunes are purely instrumental, one gem is the "My Latin Sky" with great flowing guitar work aka. George Benson later work.
