• Gold Vinyl Pressing Limited to 1000 Copies

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. Limited edition gold vinyl inside the original gatefold album art…another “post-fusion” masterwork from the Lonnie Liston Smith and the Cosmic Echoes!
