Fri  & Sat at 8PM EST
Live from Smoke Jazz Club

“One of the premiere straight-ahead drummers of his generation.” – Jim Hynes, Glide Magazine

The irrepressible drummer Joe Farnsworth, a favorite of Smoke audiences from the very beginning, celebrates the release of his debut on Smoke Sessions Records, Time to Swing, which features Wynton Marsalis, Kenny Barron, and Peter Washington. Joe’s professional credits provide some idea of his importance to the modern jazz scene including extended stays with George Coleman, Benny Golson, Pharaoh Sanders, Cedar Walton, Harold Mabern, and McCoy Tyner among many others. The New York Times says, “Joe Farnsworth is a briskly swinging drummer, especially persuasive with the dialect of hard-bop.” Broadway World adds that he “is known for his blazing speed, precision and melodic playing.”
 Joining Farnsworth for these two nights, which can be streamed all weekend, is an impressive quartet with saxophonist Abraham Burton, pianist Christian Sands, and bassist Peter Washington.

Joe Farnsworth - "Time to Swing"

The drummer of choice for some the biggest names in jazz for more than aquarter century, Joe Farnsworth delivers a career defining masterpiece of his own with Time to Swing featuring pianist and NEA Jazz Master Kenny Barron; consummate bassist Peter Washington; and virtuoso trumpeter and cultural icon Wynton Marsalis.

Farnsworth’s acute musical vision was formed over years of peerless performances and recordings with artists like George Coleman, Benny Golson, Pharoah Sanders, Curtis Fuller, Horace Silver, Diana Krall, and, of course, Wynton Marsalis. Wynton is the featured special guest on the first four tracks of Time to Swing and the pairing of his trumpet and Farnsworth’s cymbal beat is simply great jazz music. The first half concludes with a tour-de-force drum solo that is dedicated to the late, great Jimmy Cobb, before a second half that is as scintillating a piano trio performance as you’ll hear anywhere.

Farnsworth is something of a piano trio specialist with extensive work in theclassic trios of Cedar Walton, Hank Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Harold Mabern among others. Here, Barron, Washington, and Farnsworth deliver unforgettable renditions of Monk, Ellington, and more in a trio set that is a new classic in itself.
