Dr. Lonnie Smith, who Akiko Tsuruga describes as her mentor, came to Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola for Akiko’s performance on Monday, March 19. When Akiko introduced Dr. Smith from the bandstand, she talked about their breakfasts at IHOP in Harlem, and how much Dr. Smith likes “two eggs and American cheese.” Here, Dr. Lonnie Smith, WBGO radio personality, Rhonda Hamilton, and Akiko Tsuruga smile for the camera just following the first set.
