James Hughes Jimmy Smith Quintet

Modern Bop from Detroit featuring Jimmy Smith-trumpet, James Hughes-saxophones, Phil Kelly-piano, Takashi Iio-bass, Nate Winn-drums. We are rooted in the Detroit tradition of hard bop. Our tunes are intricately arranged, but leave well crafted spaces for improvisation. We are influenced by Donald Byrd/Pepper Adams, Thad Jones, Woody Shaw, Joe Henderson/Kenny Durham, early Marsalis Bros, and OTB.
