Think Like This
Los Angeles-based drummer and composer Jason Smith, with Gary Husband and Dave Carpenter, have crafted a refreshing and uncompromising vision of the jazz trio in Smith's debut recording as a leader, "Think Like This." This outing mixes new compositions like "Gnu York" and "Taylor Made" with ambitious and inventive interpretations of works by Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock and Kenny Wheeler. It's an audiophile piano trio recording of exceptional quality, and features the debut of Gary Husband in a jazz trio setting as a pianist. Members of Smith's trio have backed up artists such as Allan Holdsworth, Mike Keneally, Branford Marsalis and countless other jazz luminaries.
