Currently, the two weekend sets are streamed live at 8pm (20:00) in New York and are available for purchase and streaming for 48 hours after each performance for listening and viewing opportunities in any time zone. Stream the set at your convenience. While these performances might not replace a night at a jazz club, they offer an essential new way to experience great music!

All livestreams are indeed performed and streamed live. On the occasion where we present a pre-recorded show, it will be titled as a restream.

Smoke...known for its intimacy in person was well recreated online, with the best sound this reviewer has (virtually) heard thus far and no less than six camera angles.”– Andrey Henkin, The NYC Jazz Record

FRIDAY APRIL 4/23 - SATURDAY APRIL 24 / LIVE STREAMED / 8PM EST

E.J. Strickland (drums)
Marcus Strickland (saxophone)
Joel Ross (vibraphone)
Luis Perdomo (piano)
Michael Olatuja (bass)

"As for E.J., he just gets better and better. His whirlwind multi-faceted drumming is like a continuous solo at times, but constantly swinging and always subtle." – JazzWise

Drummer E.J. Strickland leads an outstanding quintet featuring his twin brother saxophonist Marcus Strickland, vibraphonist Joel Ross, pianist Luis Perdomo, and bassist Michael Olatuja in two nights of livestreamed concert performances. Strickland is the world-class, world-traveled drummer who has toured, performed, and recorded with some of the greatest names in contemporary music: Cassandra Wilson, Terence Blanchard, Lizz Wright, Wynton Marsalis, George Colligan, David Gilmore, Vincent Herring, and Nnenna Freelon, to name a few. The Hartford Courant reports his drumming “has a rare balance of subtlety and power” while All About Jazz adds, “(he) belongs to a technically brilliant and forward-thinking group of young musicians.” And Downbeat says he emits “fields of cumulative energy, clouds of feather-touch and heavy-handed syncopations, latent with power like an oncoming storm.”

How It Works

The performances will be delivered via a safe, secure, and private YouTube stream. Simply purchase a streaming pass (click here) and you will receive an e-mail to a locked and secure pre-event screen. A countdown clock will show when your event codes will be revealed. After the code is revealed, another clock will show the live stream start time.

SMOKE SESSIONS RECORDS CD RELEASE

Eric Reed - "For Such A Time As This"

For more than three decades as one of the most influential and beloved jazz musicians, Eric Reed has recorded close to 30 accomplished leader albums showcasing his virtuosic chops, intellectual clarity, unwavering will to swing, and ability to refract and coalesce a wide range of musical, spiritual, and personal influences into a single stream of consciousness. Perhaps the most personal of them all is For Such a Time as This, a powerful and uplifting program framed by the realities of global pandemic anxiety, persistent racism and racial injustice, and an acrimonious, fraught Presidential election season.

It was in Los Angeles in early 2020, when the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggered a city-wide shutdown, that Reed began to conceive For Such A Time As This to be recorded in L.A. with local musicians. By the end of June, he was ready and had assembled a gifted, young quartet to record a set of recently penned originals, carefully chosen standards, old chestnuts, and, as he has done regularly over the past 15 years, some restorative Gospel selections.

Assembled for this session, the group—drum virtuoso Kevin Kanner, Australia-born bassist Alex Boneham, tenor and soprano saxophonist Chris Lewis—nonetheless displays the chemistry of a long-established band. Reed’s original composition “Make Me Better,” is sung by the soulful Henry Jackson, who “puts a fine point on everything I’m hoping and wishing for—that I will be made better by this experience, and that I will encourage other people to be better as well.”
