Description

An exciting new direction for leading Scottish saxophonist Tommy Smith's brand new band. 'Karma' combines virtuosic musicianship and powerhouse, grooving rhythms with atmospheric textures evoking Irish, Scottish, Japanese and Arabic folk influences. A major statement from an internationally renowned master. Hailed on arrival by critics as the toughest and most creative group of his career, Tommy Smith's 'Karma' sees the brilliant Scottish saxophonist lead a band of virtuosic musicians on a deeply grooving jazz adventure that draws on influences from around the world. Comprising Smith on tenor and soprano saxophones and Shakuhachi flute, mega-talented pianist and keyboardist Steve Hamilton, six string bass guitar sensation Kevin Glasgow and jet-powered drummer Alyn Cosker, 'Karma' presents music of gobsmacking energy and superb inventiveness. Writing for these musicians has given Smith a new edge. 'Karma's' ten brand new compositions, while acknowledging past masters including Weather Report and Michael Brecker, drive forward concisely and urgently into the urban club culture of the current age with occasional pauses in a chill-out zone that evokes Smith's native Scottish landscapes and Japanese meditation rites. Personnel: Tommy Smith (tenor and soprano saxophones, Shakuhatchi, synth), Steve Hamilton (piano, synth, tambourine), Kevin Glasgow (electric bass), Alyn Cosker (drums)
