Cosmic Funk

It was Flying Dutchman that put out some of Lonnie Liston Smith and the Cosmic Echoes's most vital work. Despite their groundbreaking albums, though, they are often overlooked by hardcore jazz nuts and we cannot work out why.

Artist: Lonnie Liston Smith and The Cosmic Echoes

Genre: Jazz

Label: Beat Goes Public

Release date:

In five albums stretching over four years, this partnership took the fusion style into the next dimension and mixed up post-bop modal, spiritual jazz, funk, rock and pop in the process. There was nothing safe about their work but this one took on a funkier feel that most with Lonnie Liston Smith's brother Donald contributing smooth vocals to tunes including John Coltrane's 'Naima.'
