The Jay Smith Group are an extremely talented group of musicians from Bakersfield that have created a unique style of jazz that begs to be heard. There style is can be a bit difficult to categorize since you can hear so many different influences, but if you are a fan of jazz, rock, latin, fusion, or prog, then you will love this group. We spent some time with the guys as they recorded their upcoming album, and it is clear that this group was meant to play together. Improvising any type of music is tough, but Jazz is a genre where improvising can seem messy, however, The Jay Smith Group just do it perfectly & in balance. Currently the guys are trying to crowd source funding for the release of their latest album Too Many Notes. We were lucky enough to be present while these master musicians created this absolutely amazing album, and we are very excited to hear the finished product.
