O’s Notes: David Smith plays trumpet and leads a jazz-fusion quintet with Dan Pratt (sax), Nate Radley (g), Gary Wang (b) and Anthony Pinciotti (d). He shares the spotlight with his team and they respond with standout solos. Smith composed all six selections on Impetus showing attention to pace, depth and complexity. Radley shines on “Moments” and both Pratt & Pinciotti step up on “The Toaster”. David shows a passionate side on the finale “Intersection” capping a very good set.
