Homecoming Of The Chief

New York City based saxophonist and flutist Ian Hendrickson-Smith is mostly noted for his remarkable tone, soulful approach and blues driven melodies. Equally adept on all the saxophones, Ian stays very busy doing what he loves and loves staying busy! Currently you can find Ian playing on the road with The Roots or on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

Hendrickson-Smith’s extensive recording experience includes the release of ten jazz records as a leader. His most recent, Live At Smalls (SmallsLive 2015) garnered critical acclaim from the New York Times. Hendrickson-Smith has worked and/or recorded with renowned artists such Sharon Jones and the DapKings, Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson, Al Green, Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran, Bob Dylan, Phish, Boyz 2 Men, Michael Buble, Etta Jones, Sturgill Simpson and more.

David Hazeltine is one of a handful of contemporary pianists who has mastered all of the major musical skills, from improvisation and technique, to accompaniment, arranging, and composition. Even more impressive, David is the rare artist able to innovate in each category. Thus it’s no surprise that he’s the most recorded contemporary jazz pianist of our time, having recorded thirty five cd’s as a leader and hundreds more as a sideman, on various major labels globally. A Milwaukee native, David was playing the clubs as a preteen, and before he’d even come of age he was already grabbing the attention and respect of jazz legends like Sonny Stitt, and Chet Baker.
