Componist Lonnie Smith Nummer 147932 Uitgever Groove Merchant Omschrijving

Review by Jason Ankeny

Afrodesia expands upon the soul-jazz sensibility of organist Lonnie Smith's classic Blue Note efforts, abandoning their hairpin-tight, diamond-sharp grooves in favor of more meditative, free-flowing epics that draw on elements of Latin jazz, pop, and even disco. Featuring a supporting cast including then-unknown saxophonist Joe Lovano, electric bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Jamey Huddad, Afrodesia features some of Smith's strongest, most nuanced work; the imaginative arrangements create panoramic stretches of space for all of the players to explore, and they push the 15-minute "Spirits Free" into compelling new spheres of funk consciousness.
