A global presence on the jazz scene since his teenage years with Gary Burton’s Whiz Kids, saxophonist Tommy Smith, who has recorded for both Blue Note and ECM Records, has assembled a new all-star quartet to pay a personal homage to his greatest inspiration, John Coltrane. With the award-winning Peter Johnstone (piano), the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra’s Calum Gourlay (double bass) and the powerhouse behind Herbie Hancock and Jamie Cullum, Sebastiaan de Krom (drums), plus some iconic Coltrane numbers, Embodying the Light promises exciting music full of spirit and passion.
“Absolutely top drawer: fluid, articulate, commanding and constantly surprising.” – Keith Bruce, The Herald
“Smith’s eloquence on a saxophone is all his own.” – John Fordham, The Guardian
