Walter Smith III: Twio
- The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center
The Kogod Cabaret is back! This event features cabaret-style seating with tables for two or four people. You may be seated with another party.
The New York Times describes tenor saxophonist Walter Smith III's work as "fabulous," while jazz legend Jimmy Heath calls Smith “a perfect example of what my mentor Dizzy Gillespie said: ‘You have to have one foot in the past and one foot in the future.’” He has performed all over the world, participating in virtually every international festival as well as famed venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Village Vanguard and The Kennedy Center.
2022 brought Walter Smith III to new heights with his most compelling and reflective album to date, “In Common III,” released in March and featuring some of the most important and talked-about artists on the scene, including Matt Stevens, Kris Davis, Dave Holland and Terri Lyne Carrington. Downbeat calls it “one of the coolest projects you’ll hear this year” and “a wondrous listen from start to finish.”
