A great second set from this group led by tenorist Walter Smith III
and guitarist Matthew Stevens
– music that rings out with a really beautiful, resonant sound right from the very first note – a unique blending of the two instruments, in ways that often have lots of edges and angles on the guitar, warmed up nicely by the tenor! Other group members include Micah Thomas on piano, Linda May Han Oh on bass, and Nate Smith
on drums – and the tunes bubble and pulsate with really fresh, unique rhythms that match the energy of the tenor and guitar, as the group make their way through some well-penned tunes by both Smith
. Titles include "Little Lamplight", "Opera", "Type Rider", "Van Der Linde", "Clem", "Cowboy", "Lotto", and "Provinces".
