Smith Dobson, known for his work on drums, vibes and sax among other pursuits, is happily at work building a new quartet with a new sound, drawing on the tradition of vibes-led groups like the Modern Jazz Quartet.

For his date this Saturday, 9/5, he’s got Luke Westbrook on guitar; Miles Wick on bass and Hamir Atwal on drums.
