His trio consists of guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg and drummer Johnathan Blake. Smith has been featured on more than 70 albums, and has recorded and performed with a virtual “Who’s Who” of the greatest jazz, blues and R&B giants in the industry. Consequently, he has been hailed as a “Legend,” a “Living Musical Icon” and the most creative jazz organist by a slew of music publications. Many awards have followed since Downbeat magazine named Smith “Top Organist” of the year in 1969, including “Organist/Keyboardist of the Year” by the Jazz Journalist Association, the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame and Jazz Organ Fellowship, the Village Music Legends Award and — this past June — the NEA Jazz Masters Award, the nation’s highest honor in jazz.
