Details

Bay Area multi-instrumentalist (Saxophone/Drums/Vibraphone) Smith Dobson has worked with jazz legends like Bobby Hutcherson, Red Rodney, John Handy, Sheila Jordan, Red Holloway, Pete and Conte Condoli, Phillip Harper, and Ben Goldberg, and performed at major Bay Area venues, such as the SFJAZZ, Monterey Jazz Festival, Yoshi's, Great American Music Hall, California Jazz Conservatory, Stanford Jazz Workshop, and Club Deluxe.

As a saxophonist part of what sets Dobson apart from his peers is his lithe, cool tone and relaxed, even phrasing. Inspired by Lester Young, the seminal tenor saxophonist who changed the shape of jazz in the 1930s with his sound and rhythmic feel, Dobson credits Ben Goldberg providing the inspiration to dedicate himself to the horn.
