LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A massively sweet groover from Lonnie and the Cosmic Echoes – smoother and warmer than some of his earlier albums, with a really soulful fusion vibe! Lonnie plays acoustic piano and "electric colorations" – working with a group that includes brother Donald on flute and vocals, Dave Hubbard on trumpet, and Leon Pendarvis on clavinet – and the whole thing's got a laidback, superdope feel that shows Lonnie totally at the top of his game! There's still a nice degree of spirituality to the set, and titles include "Renaissance", "Space Lady", "Between Here & There", "Mardis Gras", "Starlight & You", "Song Of Love", and "Mongotee".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Flying Dutchman, 1973. Very Good Gatefold

Polydor, 1972. Very Good
A pretty wild album – and a really wonderful mixture of funky fusion and Spanish guitar, featuring tunes written by flamenco guitarist Sabicas, backed by arrangements handled by funky guitarist Joe Beck!
