Dear Smoke Family,

A sincere thank you to all of you who have purchased gift cards! Your support is very much appreciated.

Please "like" Smoke Jazz Club on Facebook for updates, music, and messages from our music community!

In accordance with the city’s most recent order that all restaurants and bars close to guests, Smoke will be closed until further notice.

We will post an update about reopening as soon as we have new information.  We know this decision will be difficult for our artists, patrons, and employees. Our community’s health, safety, and wellbeing continue to be our highest priority and we want to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19.

You can support your local jazz club by buying gift cards  (see link above or button below) or by purchasing CDs at www.smokesessionsrecords.com

SMOKE SESSIONS RECORDS CD RELEASE

Wayne Escoffery - "The Humble Warrior"

Saxophonist Wayne Escoffery is renowned for his fiery, muscular and virtuosic tenor playing, but his explosive sound is paired with a soft-spoken and thoughtful demeanor off the bandstand. In many cases both of those aspects of his personality can be credited to the same inspirations, giants of the music who paired estimable talents and imagination with rock-solid integrity.

On The Humble Warrior, Escofferypays homage to those figures with his most ambitious and wide-ranging set to date. While Escofferyhimself strives to represents the tenets of a Humble Warrior, it would be easy for him to act otherwise DownBeat Critics’ Poll winner, he has performed with a who’s who of jazz including Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Abdullah Ibrahim, Al Foster, Billy Hart, Eddie Henderson, Wallace Roney and others. He has been a member of the Mingus Dynasty, Big Band and Orchestra since 2000 and toured and recorded with Tom Harrell for over a decade. In addition to his Quartet, Escoffery co-leads the Black Art Jazz Collective along with other leading voices of his generation and the next.

The Humble Warrior marks Escoffery’s leader debut for Smoke Sessions Records, where he’s previously recorded with the trombonist Steve Davis. The album features the return of Escoffery’s stellar quartet featuring pianist David Kikoski, bassist Ugonna Okegwo and drummer Ralph Peterson. Trumpet great Randy Brecker and guitarist David Gilmore supplement the band for Escoffery’s breathtaking arrangement of several parts of Benjamin Britten’s Missa Brevis in D.

“We lost a lot of really great musicians in 2018 and 2019,” he says. “People like Roy Hargrove, Harold Mabern, Larry Willis, Richard Wyands, Lawrence Leathers, and, most recently, Jimmy Heath. I would describe all of those musicians as “Humble Warriors.” I have a lot of admiration and respect for them; they were all great warriors of the music but always allowed the music to keep them humble. They all exemplified the utmost humility and integrity despite their superior abilities. I hope to maintain those same traits in my musical endeavors.”
