STEVE SMITH AND VITAL INFORMATION

“Vital Information is one of improvised music’s best-kept secrets, the tunes are adventurous and they always groove. The musicians shoot for, and achieve, real emotion rather than soulless fireworks.” 

~ Felix Contreras, Jazz Times

“The pristine live recording and warm, grainy black-and-white companion DVD reveal Vital Information to be a more than vital force. Raw, visceral, sophisticated, grooving, swinging, burning hard or playing laid-back and sensitive, these guys are the real deal.” 

~ Jeff Miers, The Buffalo News
