Dr. Lonnie Smith (Organ): Turning Point

Album Notes

Blues-based and funky, soul-jazz isn't known for encouraging wildly eclectic playing in its musicians. And while Lonnie Smith's TURNING POINT is by no stretch an experimental outing--it sticks to the basic structures of the soul-jazz genre--there is plenty of adventurous playing within those confines. In large part, this is attributable to the superb personnel here, which includes trumpeter Lee Morgan, saxophonist Bennie Maupin, and trombonist Julian Priester, all of whom are forward-thinking players. The result is a shimmering album full of grooves and great musicianship.
