Lonnie Liston Smith’s last album for the Flying Dutchman label ‘Renaissance’ was actually released on RCA in 1976. It is the bridge between his jazzier FD recordings and slightly more commercial Columbia albums that followed. ‘Space Lady’ and the slightly slower ‘Mongotee’ are typical Lonnie Liston instrumental Jazz- Funk grooves. ‘Mardi Gras (Carnival) ‘ has a Brazilian flavour and a relentless groove which has made it a Jazz- Dance classic. ‘Renaissance’ is a beautiful mid tempo groove featuring brother Donald Smith on vocals , which has that kick to the rhythm making it popular on the 2-Step Rare Groove scene. ‘A Song of Love’ is a lovely uplifting song with Lonnie playing Acoustic Piano and brother Donald singing , that shuffles along nicely.

Donald also sings on the downtempo ‘Starlight and You’ . ‘Renaissance’ is a very good and under-rated album that deserves greater acclaim.
