Drummer Neal Smith leads a quartet with the formidable Nicaraguan-born pianist Donald Vega. A mainstay with Cyrus Chestnut for more than a decade, Neal has also worked with Tom Harrell, Brian Lynch, Anita Baker, Issac Hayes, and Mulgrew Miller. “He has that much-desired talent of solidifying an organized sound while driving the music in interesting directions,” says All About Jazz. And, The New York Times reports, “He wasn’t pushing an agenda about conserving an art form — there was no preciousness or anxiety in the music — but his set made you feel that jazz as a traditional language is safe and sound.
