Overview

Drummer Jason Smith's trio set is difficult to classify. Because Gary Husband utilizes electric keyboards on some numbers, the music occasionally has the feel of fusion, although it is not a simple mixing of jazz and rock elements. Sometimes orchestral in nature, Smith's originals lack memorable melodies, but his compositions feature plenty of colorful interplay by the musicians, with bassist Dave Carpenter being an equal voice with Husband and Smith. The one older standard, "The Way You Look Tonight," is a fairly free improvisation until the theme finally emerges at its conclusion, and the group's interpretations of pieces by Keith Jarrett and Kenny Wheeler are also rather abstract, with Herbie Hancock's "Dolphin Dance" being the most straightforward performance. Think Like This is an easier program to admire than to love, but it grows in interest with each listen since it features consistently creative playing by the three musicians.
