Jason Harrison Smith Jazz Trio
Jason Harrison Smith - Drums
Jason's debut solo recording, "Think Like This" also features bassist Dave Carpenter and drummer/keyboardist Gary Husband. The music showcases a precocious, updated, and unconventional take on the standard jazz trio format.
John Adams - Bass
As an accomplished acoustic and electric bassist, John Adams is one of the Southwest’s most versatile and in-demand musicians. Adams holds Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the University of North Texas, where for ten years he was the jazz bass instructor. He is also active as producer, arranger, composer, music contractor, lecturer and workshop clinician.
Michael Clement - Piano
An artist in many historical and modern styles, Michael Clement connects to his listeners through his outstanding versatility and range of musicianship. He breaks from the traditional mold, and in addition to being a classical concert and collaborative pianist, is just as proficient in jazz improvisation and other modern genres. He seeks to be like the pianist-composers of the 18th and 19th centuries, performing concerts filled with improvisations, originals compositions, and the compositions of composers who have come before. He enjoys teaching, and hopes to bring his well-rounded perspective to the next generation of musicians, teaching them to explore music as he does.
