"That's What You Say!" was definitely one of the most heartfelt sayings when Hammond Legend Dr. Lonnie Smith shared the studio with The Jazzinvaders in the summer of 2012. After meeting and gigging earlier in 2012, Dr. Lonnie and The Jazzinvaders decided it would be fun to spend some days in the studio to see what would happen. When the opportunity occurred, new material was written in practically no time at all and after three days of recording there appeared to be a completely spontaneous fourth album recorded live in the studio! Finding a suitable title for the upcoming album wasn't that hard. The Doctor appeared to be a great storyteller and this one quote was stuck in our memory: "That's What You Say!" needed to be the title of the new album, an album that reflects a fruitful co-operation and lots of respect.
According to the band, the album containing eight brand new tracks and two rearranged standards lead to it's "most jazzy album so far." The grooves by Phil and Ton, the compositions by Van Duikeren, Delfos, Nijs and Busstra combined with lyrics and vocals of Bloemhard and the always impressive and tasty Hammond by Dr. Lonnie, seemed to be the perfect ingredients for this new album.
Just like the band did on their previous albums, they managed to stick to their trademark and typical "Jazzinvaders Sound"; easy accessible jazz combined with nicely flavored and surprising beats!
Dr. Lonnie Smith has been active as a musician and composer for more than 50 years. He's thought of as being a pioneer when it comes to the legendary Hammond B3 organ. He has recorded more than 70 albums to date, many of those for the Blue Note label, and he has worked with all the greats when it comes to jazz, blues and R&B.
