American jazz musician Dr. Lonnie Smith delivers the new live album, All In My Mind, this month. The session was recorded during his week-long 75th birthday celebration in New York City.

Dr. Smith is regarded as master of the Hammond B-3 Organ. He plays songs he loves with men he considers brothers. For this recording, Dr. Smith teamed up with guitarist Jonathan Kriesberg and drummer Johnathan Blake. In reference to All In My Mind, Smith said that “playing live is all about playing in the moment. It’s about the vibe.”

Smith now lives in Florida and still frequently tours the U.S. to share his music. On May 6th, Dr. Smith comes to West Michigan, performing in Kalamazoo at Williams Theatre at Western Michigan University.
