About Dr. Lonnie Smith

Born in Lackawanna, NY, Lonnie Smith started as a singer in 1950s vocal ensembles. He moved to New York City where, in 1966, he began a fruitful collaboration with guitarist George Benson. Smith recorded the first of his more than 30 albums as a leader in 1967. Many jazz greats have accompanied him live and on records, including Lee Morgan, David "Fathead" Newman, King Curtis, Terry Bradds, Blue Mitchell and Joe Lovano.
