"... a great pianist who has now emerged as an equally remarkable vibraphonist, Anthony Smith is a highly creative musician who is taking his considerable pianistic knowledge and transferring it to the vibraphone... and he's doing it in a really cool way! I love the clarity in Anthony's harmonic approach.
"Play It Forward" is definitely a record jazz fans and vibes players need to check out. It's great playing by world class players, great music, great solos, but most importantly, I had FUN listening to it. I can't say that about all the CDs I own. In jazz, we need music that draws new listeners in. The Anthony Smith Quintet's new double recording, "Play It Forward," is going to do just that.
