Knick Smith Band feat: Dennis ChambersVisit Website
Knick Smith™ (Nick Smith), a Jazz Pianist, is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music. Some of Knick’s career highlights include working in the Tonight Show Band and extensive service as musical director and keyboardist for Grammy-winning artist Stanley Clarke.
A partial list of artists that Knick has performed with includes Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah, Kenny Garrett, Kirk Whalum, and Marcus Miller. Knick’s performances are largely original compositions with Standards interspersed featuring Straight Ahead, Fusion and Contemporary/Smooth Jazz.
Knick’s philosophy: when performing music, give your All—provide precise, free-flowing, and rhythmically diverse music to your audience; devote yourself to delivering performances that adhere to the correct form of the composition with persistently lyrical, stratospheric comping— epitomize the definition of Jazz by featuring complex chord structure, improvised solos, and dynamic, syncopated rhythm.
