About the concert:
Drummer and composer Nate Smith is among the most influential rhythm masters of his generation, known for his inimitable groove work with Pat Metheny, Chris Potter, Dave Holland, José James, and Ravi Coltrane.
He makes his debut appearance as a leader with his double GRAMMY-nominated KINFOLK project, in support of his latest Edition Records album, “Kinfolk 2: See The Birds.” Bridging Smith’s influences and experience as a jazz artist and his early experiences with R&B and progressive rock, Kinfolk 2 showcases the drummer’s masterful band that includes saxophone great Jaleel Shaw, bassist Fima Ephron, guitarist Brad Allen Williams, and Brian Blade Fellowship keyboardist Jon Cowherd.
