Turning Point is the second album by American organist Lonnie Smith recorded in 1969 and released on the Blue Note label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 3 stars and stated "While the more adventurous elements of Turning Point make for an intriguing listen, the album isn't quite as enjoyable as the harder grooving sessions or the spacier soul-jazz records from the same era. Nevertheless, it's a worthwhile listen".[2]
