Great great songs number 3

Expansions by Lonnie Liston Smith. Originally released on Flying Dutchman records in 1974 although some sources say 1975, this tune features one of my favourite basslines of all time. It just bubbles and rolls along relentlessly while Lonnie soars over top with a nice flute line to underpin it all. The bassline was famously used by Stetasonic in their hip hop classic Talkin All That Jazz and the tune was remixed by the unsurpassable garage master Larry Levan. Priceless jazz fusion soul. Here's Lonnie's page.at Soulwalking.
