lonnie liston smith A Song for the Children / Exotic Mysteries (CD, £8.50)label: cherry red
A welcome repress for these two classic albums: “A Song For The Children” and “Exotic Mysteries” which features ‘Space Princess’ a Lonnie Liston Smith masterpiece. “A Song For The Children” features seven jazz fusion masterpieces including the title track which can only be described as more Disco than jazz but it really worked and is now one of Lonnie’s standards along with ‘Expansions’ & ‘Space Princess’. The album “Exotic Mysteries” as Lonnie points out on the sleeve notes was one of his personal favourites to record and an album where he discovered a young sixteen year old Marcus Miller, who wrote several songs for the album, and Lonnie knew he would be a star. The track ‘Quiet Moments’ is one of Lonnie’s favourite tracks. So all in all this is quite a package that all Lonnie’s fans will love. Tracklisting: 1. A SONG FOR THE CHILDREN 2. A LOVERS DREAM 3.
