Paul Smith Stewart Quintet 7pm $15
S.F. Bay Area jazz artist, Paul Smith Stewart, recently released his funk-infused debut EP Transitions. Paul Smith Stewart moved back to the Bay Area after touring and recording for many years as the bass player for the Central Coast rock band, Still Time. Since that time he has been composing, workshopping, and collaborating on a new project that has now come to fruition. Paul, influenced by groups such as Medeski, Martin, and Wood and Snarky Puppy, incorporated a modern funk groove into each of these expansive jazz compositions. The quintet featured on the EP consists of Lee Dynes (guitar), Ben Lauffer (drums), Ryan Mosse (tenor saxophone), Paul Smith Stewart (bass), and Kevin Wong (keys).
The EP is available to stream on Spotify and Apple Music. Transitions can also be streamed or purchased online on Bandcamp and SoundCloud. In-studio videos from the recording session are available to stream on YouTube.
