Dr. Lonnie Smith Trio

with Jonathan Kreisberg and Jamire Williams

Sponsored by Friends of Jazz St. Louis

Worldwide organ master Dr. Lonnie Smith returns to the Bistro with his wonderfully exuberant gospel-, blues-, funk-based brand of Hammond B-3 jazz.  Everybody rocks when the Doctor is in the house. No wonder the Jazz Journalists Association has named him Organ Keyboardist of the Year no fewer than five times.  The joy he takes in creating and performing music is obvious: “The organ is like sunlight, rain and thunder,” he says.  “It’s all the worldly sounds to me!”

“The Hammond B-3 organist Dr. Lonnie Smith is a reliable captain of soul and can make almost any groove feel deep and inevitable.” – The New York Times
