Billy Weir is still very much on pause. Things are… well… completely topsy turvy at the moment.
But amidst all this. An album I recorded with John Law has been mentioned by BBC Music Magazine in their list of “The best jazz recordings released in 2020 so far”. We’re in some fairly lofty company including John Scofield and Bill Frisell! I feel honoured and, frankly, baffled to have been mentioned along side them!
Full article here: They accidentally called me Dave Smith, but frankly he’s such an incredible drummer than I’m quite happy to be accidentally called by his name.
*UPDATE* In the December/January issue of Jazzwise Magazine, this album has been included in the critics poll of “The Best Albums of 2020”. It’s real honour to have contributed to an album that is included in this list. Congratulations John Law!
