Steve Smith has been with his all-star group Vital Information since 1983. The line-up of Vital Information NYC Edition incorporates players from all of Smith's bands: guitarist Vinny Valentino (from Vital Information and The Groove Blue Organ Trio), pianist Mark Soskin (from Jazz Legacy and Buddy's Buddies), bassist Baron Browne (from Jazz Legacy, Buddy's Buddies and Vital Information), with Smith on drums.
Since 2016 Smith started touring again with the iconic, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted band, Journey. In 2018 alone, Journey played for over 1,000,000 fans in the USA.
With VI NYC Edition performing around the world, it's a perfect opportunity to see Smith with his jazz-fusion band in an intimate setting, where you can appreciate the details of their high-level musicianship.
Steve Smith had this to say about VI NYC Edition's philosophy: "We thrive on swing, groove and creativity. We want to surprise each other every night on the bandstand with new ideas and in the process keep our audience 'in the moment' with us."
Steve has won a number of Modern Drummer reader's polls including "#1 All-Around Drummer" five years in a row. He was voted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame and named "one of the Top 25 Drummers of All Time".
"Vital Information is one of improvised music's best-kept secrets, the tunes are adventurous and they always groove. The musicians shoot for, and achieve, real emotion rather than soulless fireworks." - JazzTimes
