“Expansions” was the first charted single for jazz keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith. The year was 1975.
Nationally, it was a minor radio hit. But I think “Expansions” got a lot of play in D.C., because the bass line looms in my memory as one of the killer funk- fusion hooks of the decade. (Bass player was Cecil McBee.)
Stetsasonic took that bass lick and built a hit record in 1988 called “Talkin’ All That Jazz.”
Cheers to Mark, a.k.a. fastflyer2007, for uploading this one.
