ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About the Project

Long before Lonnie’s cancer diagnosis, I said I wanted to make an album comprised entirely of Lonnie performing his originals, including all the lyrics. Lonnie and I were planning that project when his fight with cancer was lost. Without Lonnie, of course, that dream was not to be realized.

I couldn’t let go of the desire to make more of Lonnie‘s music available for the enjoyment of others. Eventually, my original idea was modified to creating an album containing performances reflective of Lonnie’s career; with originals and covers not on his previous albums; containing a variety of genres; and representation of every decade.

Knowing of their admiration of Lonnie as well as their history of creating world class albums of their own, I asked for help from our friends, Richard Grossman and Madeleine Hart. Without hesitation, they enthusiastically agreed. I gave Richard a potential song list, created from some of the recordings I have of Lonnie‘s live performances – and the process began.

All songs on the album are special to me and/or what I understand to be special to other groups of people. Of particular significance to me is “If I Go.” The lyrics were written for me by Lonnie on 4-2-16, one day after his cancer diagnosis. He started developing the music a few days later. The song was completed in Dec. of 2017 after Richard further developed the music and recorded it.

My wish is that this album brings pleasure to all listeners, and especially to those whose lives touched Lonnie’s in such a positive way.

– Patti Patton, Producer

"Lonnie Knight reminds me of a fine wine because his art gets better with time. Lonnie's metaphors sink into the soul like a poet's words in most of his melodies."
- Mia Jennings, Music Writer, Blues On Stage
