Wow!!! The Dr. has spoken. If you heard it you know what I'm talking about, if you didn't well you could look him up here.

Thats right!! Dr. Lonnie Smith gave Astral Traveling some words of wisdom and some. If you would like to hear how a Hammond B-3 organ should be played then make sure you check him out at Jimmy Mac's this Tuesday night April 20th for the Soul'd Out Festival(link- ). He also spoke about his organization The Jazz Foundation and how it is helping elder Jazz and Blues musicians in crisis. You too can help by visiting this link - . Thank you Dr. Lonnie Smith and everyone for listening.
