Wikipedia : This day ( December 28, 1940), in  Richmond, Virginia, is born Lonnie Liston Smith, Jr., an American jazz, soul, and funk musician.

Official Web Site : Lonnie and Pharaoh Sanders created spontaneously at every moment. Lonnie, also began to experiment with electric keyboards and created a rich Cosmic sound to support Pharaoh’s impassioned tenor saxophone flights.

@allmusic : When Lonnie Liston Smith made the transition from sideman to leader in 1973, it was the beginning of a fusion/crossover/post-bop band he dubbed Lonnie Liston Smith & the Cosmic Echoes.

@last.fm : But the Cosmic Echoes were hardly jazz purists. Their instrumental fusion combined those post-bop influences with funk, pop, and rock, and some of their best-known vocal numbers (which include 1979’s “Space Princess” and 1983’s “Never Too Late”) were outright R&B.

@Discogs : He is renowned for defying genres, blending atmospheric fusion, soul and funk and is often quoted as a strong influence on acid jazz. He is still writing and touring.
