On the subject of playing technique, Hammond B3 organist Dr. Lonnie Smith has said, "Just because you have muscle doesn't mean you have to show it off.” And that's just what the jazz organ god seems to be doing on the title cut from his latest outing. Smith, guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg and drummer Jamire Williams share the wealth on this slow-burner until Smith explodes the smooth tune with a brief, brawny eruption of soul right at the end of the song. There's certainly nothing wrong with flexing a little muscle.
