Preview - This Saturday (Tonight - June 4) @ Hoochie: The Legendary Lonnie Liston Smith Band!

Tonight at Hoochie sees the return visit by one of the jazz/soul legends - Lonnie Listen Smith. Two years back he took the Hoochies and the Coochies by storm and I'm sure this time around it will still be the hottest ticket in town.
Lonnie Listen has a pedigree few living legends can match (read more) and I'm proud to say his previous visit was reviewed by yours truly on BSH.
Roll on Saturday!
Lance.

Saw him at a Caister Weekender when we were both 30 years younger. Expansions is one of THE seminal Jazz Funk records and a monster track. Ditto 'a chance for peace/ give peace a chance' and a couple of others I can't remember the title of - Sunburst?
Also played with Roland Kirk, Pharaoh Saunders and Miles so some pre-funk history there too.
