Effortlessly cool sound!!
Cnet Download.Com Contemporary Jazz Featured Artist, Illinois-based axeman Kenn Smith, who has played with the likes of Wynton Marsalis and Stanley Jordan, summons an effortlessly cool sound from both bass and guitar. His agile, arcing riffs suggest influences ranging from Scofield to Santana, and his jazz- fusion stylings are as soulful as they are slick."

Warren Murchiie/ Bass Inside Magazine
