Dr. Lonnie Smith Trio with special guest James Carter

“When organ master Dr. Lonnie Smith sits down at the Hammond B-3, it’s all about soul. Not speed, not flash, not tricky riffs – just hard-core, deep-down feeling…” Chicago Tribune

“Carter…has emerged as one of the brightest stars in jazzdom…” Detroit News

Virtuoso saxophonist James Carter joins forces with legendary soul organist Dr. Lonnie Smith for an event you’ll only see in St. Louis! James Carter is a powerhouse player you will never forget.

With a unique voice born of the funk and fusion, rock, soul, and acoustic jazz he grew up hearing in Detroit, he plays saxophone with deep respect for, and intimate knowledge of, the jazz tradition. A master of the Hammond B-3 organ for over five decades, Dr. Lonnie Smith has been featured on over seventy albums, recording and performing with a virtual “Who’s Who” of jazz, blues, and R&B musicians. With a worldwide fanbase, Dr. Smith has been hailed as a “living musical icon” and jazz’s most creative organist.
