Pianist/keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith played on such classic Pharaoh Sanders' albums as Karma and Thembi, but 1973 saw his emergence as a band leader when he formed the Cosmic Echoes. 1974's Cosmic Funk is their second album, featuring vocals from Lonnie's brother, Donald Smith. Aside from renditions of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints" and John Coltrane's "Naima," this record marks a transition away from Smith's earlier free jazz roots, moving into spacious, funk/fusion territory on cuts like "Peaceful Ones" and the title track. Gatefold, exact repro reissue.
