Steve Smith’s Vital Information NYC Edition—the newest iteration of one of the most durable and intoxicating outfits in jazz—is “the best of all worlds,” says the world-class drummer, and he’s not tossing off groundless hyperbole. Smith—who has been inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame and was just named Fusion Drummer of the Year by the magazine— is an astute and prescient bandleader who has piloted several lineups of Vital Information since the early ’80s, as well as leading the highly touted combos Buddy’s Buddies (a Buddy Rich tribute outfit) and Jazz Legacy, which the former evolved into.
