The post-fusion God, lord of the cosmic funk, a supreme astral traveller and for this shopkeeper the kind of jazz artist you put folk onto who think the glory of jazz may not be for them. Spiritual, psychedelic, funky, philosophical, deep, soulful and supremely influential, Lonnie Liston Smith was a master. 

For those who dig: Flying Lotus, Kamasi Washington, Roy Ayers, The Blackbyrds, Weldon Irvine, George Duke...

Nestled somewhere between the soul jazz, spiritual jazz, fusion, and post-bop subgenres, 1974’s Cosmic Funk headed, as the title indicates, in a funkier direction, with Lonnie Liston Smith’s brother Donald contributing smooth vocal stylings to John Coltrane’s “Naima” among other tunes. A transitional work but a fascinating one, with surehanded production once again from Bob Thiele. Features the original gatefold album art...another “post-fusion” masterwork from the Lonnie Liston Smith and the Cosmic Echoes!
