The Hammond B3 player and legend Lonnie Smith is playing in Santa Fe this week. So I decided to do this weeks Twisted Groove chock full of Hammond B3. I play older artist including Lonnie Smith, Jimmy Smith, The Meters, James Brown (on organ!) and Booker T and the MG’s. And I play younger artist carrying the B3 torch today like Zony Mash, Galactic and The Beastie Boys.
