To Dr. Lonnie Smith, Bruce Eaton's Super Bowl Program in the Hunt Real Estate Art of Jazz program at the Albright-Knox. This is the first time we've had organ jazz in the series, which is funny when you think about it. Dr. Lonnie, who is probably the most important musician working in the form today, is from Buffalo, and the city has deep roots in that sort of chitlin' circuit sound. A little organ usually goes a long way with me, but this was terrific stuff, warm and humorous, with real muscle underneath. It helped that this was a trio with guitar and drums, rather than the somewhat more conventional tenor sax-- there is a place for that, but this was more pleasing to me on a sunny Sunday after Mr. Ed's.
