Join your drumming and musical peers in seeing and experiencing, in person, a true American drumming legend, Marvin “Smitty” Smith. He has traveled extensively throughout the Orient, Europe, and the continental USA; and he has shared the stage with such greats as Sonny Rollins, Hank Jones, Frank Foster and Frank Wess, Art Farmer, Benny Golson, Slide Hampton, and Milt Jackson. He is a former member of the Ron Carter Quartet, The New York Jazz Quartet, and The Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet.
Marvin will perform and demonstrate some of his skills and abilities that have been described as a “comment on invention, firm and adventurous time and technical sufficiency.” There will be a question and answer session following the demonstration and performance.
