The drummer with the very successful rock group Journey for seven years, Steve Smith left the band in 1985 to devote his career to jazz and specifically his group Vital Information. This CD is taken from their tour of August 1989 and features Smith's unit (which also includes Larry Schneider on reeds, guitarist Frank Gambale, keyboardist Tom Coster, and bassist Larry Grenadier) playing a strong set of group originals plus the standard "I Should Care" (a straight-ahead feature for Coster and the rhythm section). Although Coster uses electronics on some of the pieces, much of his date is simply high-quality acoustic jazz; even the funkier material swings.

We owe the existence of this precious jewel to a chance encounter in Indonesia's capitalJakarta in March, 2011. Drummer Steve Smith and guitarist Vinny Valentino decided to go for a nightcap after playing the Java Jazz Festival with their band Vital Information. As they approached the lounge bar, they heard the sound of a wild swinging electric organ. Wondering “who the hell was swinging that hard on the B3,” they walked in and saw Tony Monaco, an “unsung hero” of the instrument. Few people knew Monaco, though he had been promoted by organ legend Jimmy Smith and had spent two years touring with jazz guitarist Pat Martino.

Steve Smith’s Vital Information NYC Edition—the newest iteration of one of the most durable and intoxicating outfits in jazz—is “the best of all worlds,” says the world-class drummer, and he’s not tossing off groundless hyperbole. Smith—who has been inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame and was just named Fusion Drummer of the Year by the magazine— is an astute and prescient bandleader who has piloted several lineups of Vital Information since the early ’80s, as well as leading the highly touted combos Buddy’s Buddies (a Buddy Rich tribute outfit) and Jazz Legacy, which the former evolved into.
