If it's Lonnie...it's golden.

"Let me put it this way; any Lonnie Liston Smith album you pick up will be amazing. That's the raw truth. Hence, you can count on Cosmic Funk blowing your mind, just as any other would. To be more specific, Cosmic Funk has ALL the elements of soul/jazz/atmospherics that the others do, but also another added bonus. Covers of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints" and Coltrane's "Naima" make this album a collective jewel. The title track is a straight funk explosion that sets the mood for the rest of the album. Melodically roll to "Sais (Egypt)" and groove to the house-ish "Beautiful Woman." The surprise on this masterpiece is "Peaceful Ones." If you're not careful Donald Smith's voice may catch you off guard with it's colorful beauty, but bask in it. If this review doesn't isn't the catalyst to pick up Cosmic Funk...I don't know what is. Peace to all."
Smith's most consistent outing

"This one is packed with classic tracks and is probably Smith's best record of them all. He wasn't quite discoed-out yet and he was fresh off of his traditional jazz runnings, so this record hits a very comfortable middle ground for fusion heads as well as those more tuned into smooth jazz. An incredible record that doesn't get anywhere near enough props as it should for helping define the fusion movement of the early 70s."
One of Lonnie's finest!

"If you do not have a copy of this album in your music collection...what are you waiting for? I would HIGHLY advise you to pick up a copy. This is GOOD STUFF! All of lonnie's 1970's releases are MUST HAVES! The quality of music on his albums far surpasses any of the present day era! We should all be thankful to Mr. Smith for blessing us his musical visions!"
