Walter Smith III Twio Vinyl




The joyful freedom of Ferde Grofe‘s ‘On the Trail’ captures precisely the intended spirit of Walter Smith III’s album ‘Twio’, which see him collaborate closely with established colleagues in double bassist Harish Raghavan and drummer Eric Harland.

High quality, 180 gram tri-colour vinyl 12” LP - comes with download code containing the high-res digital album.

The Texas-native, California-based tenor saxophonist and composer presents his own illuminating vision of the saxophone trio while also inviting, along the way, guest appearances by Joshua Redman (tenor saxophone) and Christian McBride (double bass).
