Transformation is definitely a must have. It finds Lonnie Liston Smith continuing to explore the smooth, overtly commercial soul-jazz direction he began in the early ’80s. It has a bit more grit and invention than such albums as Magic Lady, yet it doesn’t surge forward with the restless searching that distinguished his earlier masterworks. His brother Donald sings on „Space Princess“ and „Transformation“. The album was released 1998 by the german label ‚Soul Ciety‘.
