JAZZ: Dallas Smith Quartet (Sun., Oct. 12 @ The Liberty Theatre)
The Columbus Jazz Society welcomes the Dallas Smith Quartet.

Dallas Smith will host the Columbus Jazz Society's October twelfth Jazz Jam at the Liberty Theatre. The performance by his quartet will feature well-known jazz standards as well as some of Dallas's own bop, Latin, and fusion jazz compositions.

Since 1975, Dallas has been a West Coast native whose diverse musical career includes symphony work, studio recordings, cruise ships, casino shows, and traditional and Latin jazz groups. Together with his wife, jazz harpist Susan Mazer, Dallas has recorded numerous CD's (www.mazerandsmith.com). Dallas has toured with noted jazz pianist Ahmad Jamal and, as a member of the Swedish world music group Mynta (www.mynta.net), he has recently toured Scandinavia and India.

Dallas currently resides in Reno, Nevada, where he and Susan founded a business, Healing HealthCare Systems, to promote the use of music to create a more healing environment within healthcare facilities. Their primary product is a 24-hour relaxation channel for hospitals, called The C.A.R.E. Channel (www.healinghealth.com).

Dallas, son of the late Judge Oscar D. Smith, Jr., began his musical education in Columbus with Dr. George Corradino at Wynnton Elementary School. After playing classical clarinet for ten years (at Richards Jr. High, Columbus High School, and Florida State University), Dallas broadened his musical focus to include jazz studies (on flute and sax). He has traveled the world in pursuit of his lifelong interest in East Indian classical music, performing extensively in Europe and India.

MIC Compilation sells 100 CDs out-of-the-box
Music in Columbus' long-anticipated compilation CD "Ten Songs from the Edge of Georgia" is back from the manufacturer, then immediately sold the first 100 copies. The Columbus Convention and Visitor's Bureau purchased the order and will be on sale in the Columbus Visitor's Center at 900 Front Avenue in UpTown Columbus, Georgia.

MusicInColumbus.org's first CD project delivers a pleasantly blended "jukebox/mixtape" audio journey weaving ten local artists from ten distinct musical genres into one listening experience. From gospel to rock to progressive country, classical, pop and hip-hop, "Ten Songs from the Edge of Georgia" is merely a pinhole of a spotlight into Columbus, Georgia's rich local music scene.

We are still planning a CD Release Party somewhere in Columbus, Georgia this Fall.
