Smile and Nod - Alias Smith & Lane

Smile and Nod will make you do just that.

The coolest Hammond B-3 grooves, overlaid with with great ensemble and solo horn work from Nick Lane and Greg Smith will have you grooving in your chair.

The rhythm section is comprised of Red Young, Hammond B-3 and Wurlitzer electric piano; Tom Warrington on acoustic and electric bass; and James Gadson on drums.

James Gadson has an incredible resume as a drummer and producer, including work with Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Quincy Jones, Roy Ayers, the Gap Band, the Temptations, and hundreds more. Tom Warrington has played bass for Buddy Rich, Julie Andrews and dozens of serious jazz releases. Stints with Joan Armatrading, Dolly Parton, Eric Burdon, Juice Newton, Marcia Ball and numerous TV and movie soundtracks are among Red Young's credits on Hammond B-3 and keyboards.

This section just cooks and knows exactly how to nail the "cool" style of this release.

The grooves bring to mind legends such as Jimmy Smith, Joey Defrancesco and Gerry Mulligan. The excellent production values capture that live "intimate jazz club" vibe, which fits perfectly with the music.

Add Nick Lane on trombone and Greg Smith on baritone sax, and this is one hip CD.

The horn work is exceptional. Nick Lane is a wonderful soloist on trombone and Greg Smith shows incredible versatility with his imaginative bari sax solos. Tower of Power's Stephen "Doc" Kupka calls Mr. Smith "One of the two best bari players in the world, bar none."
