“I consider Bill Smith a phenomenal sax player who caresses melodies, putting a lot of emotion into his solos. What a terrific addition to the amazing musicians in Atlanta."

“Bill’s playing reveals a modernist who understands the past. He possesses an uncommon knowledge of the music of his predecessors, players like Coleman, Coltrane and Dolphy, but he has remolded it into a unique personal style that defies easy categorization. His style reflects the jazz saxophone's heritage, yet sounds fresh and contemporary. His tone is full and powerful, whether articulating a post-bop expressionism, a free-wheeling funkiness or a quiet romanticism. His confident technique is indispensable to an approach that can explore the extremes of the instrument at rapid tempos with virtuosic arpeggios and melodic fragments, but on ballads transforms into a warm, often delicate, lyricism. And always, Bill Smith's music carries a robust soulfulness that stirs and satisfies the listener."
Eddie Dunn, Professional Bassist/Educator
“A rare talent, not many musicians these days have the versatility to move between genres.
Bill smith has limitless range and a professionalism that makes him really easy to work with."
