Kevin Hays (piano)
Joe Martin (bass, Saturday)

“The three musicians seem to bond at the molecular level. They engage in constant conversation throughout their solos, with the pianist [Hays] responding in particular to cues from the drummer [Hart], while Street threads the needle with aplomb.”
– Michael J. West, DownBeat
This all-star collective trio featuring pianist Kevin Hays, bassist Ben Street (subbed by Joe Martin, Saturday) and drum legend Billy Hart celebrates the release of their new album All Things Are with two nights of state-of-the-art livestream concerts. These performances will be available for viewing all weekend. Hays has appeared on over 60 albums recording with Chris Potter, Joshua Redman, Nicholas Payton, and Al Foster. Other notable collaborations include a widely acclaimed duo project with Brad Mehldau, performances with James Taylor, Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson, and Roy Haynes. Street is a highly prized bassist for his work with John Scofield, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mark Turner, Sam Rivers and as a member of Billy Hart Quartet with whom he’s developed a strong rapport. Billy Hart was born in Washington, DC on November 29, 1940 and has had a rich and varied career including tenures with Jimmy Smith, Wes Montgomery, Herbie Hancock’s Mwandishi, McCoy Tyner, and Stan Getz. He also leads his own quartet and released a number of acclaimed albums. The Detroit Free-Press has stated, “Want to know what jazz is really about? Listen to Billy Hart.”

SMOKE SESSIONS RECORDS CD RELEASE

Vincent Herring - "Preaching to the Choir"

“...a session of smile-inducing swing.” — The Times (UK)

“...bright, lively hard bop and post-bop, and touching renditions of some well-known standards.” — Glide Magazine

"...an old-school, bluesy hard bop player...he surrounds himself with like-minded musicians in order to dig deep into the groove." — Stereogum
Renowned jazz saxophonist Vincent Herring battles back from a bout with Covid-19 and career-threatening side effects with a defiant and joyful new album, Preaching to the Choir, with swinging help from Cyrus Chestnut, Yasushi Nakamura and Johnathan Blake.

Preaching to the Choira paean to Herring’s fans and supporters, celebrates real triumph over hardship and challenge with soulful jazz. Herring is speaking for nearly all of us when says, “2020 into 2021 was a morbid nightmare.” But, he also experienced the pandemic firsthand, contracting Covid-19 while suffering the same loss of performance opportunities befalling every musician during the past year. That’s only meant more time spent at home, watching the turbulent presidential election and its violent aftermath.

Despite the prevailing darkness, Preaching to the Choir delivers a sermon of optimism and hope to the jazz faithful, aided by as fervent a congregation as a swing disciple could pray for: pianist Cyrus Chestnut, bassist Yasushi Nakamura, and drummer Johnathan Blake.

“We have to have hope for the future,” Herring insists. “I’ve been in a constant state of disbelief with so much going on that is negative in the world, but I try to look at the positive side of everything. Fate is written with all kinds of twists and turns, and in the end the only thing you can do is realize that as bad as things are – and they are bad –the promise of tomorrow is going to be special.”
