louis smith quartet – 2 sept 2000, detroit jazz festival, hart plaza, detroit, mi, usa
this was near the end of louis smith’s career, about which i found little other than his wikipedia page and a number of very warm obituaries of a man who apparently did a lot for jazz in michigan as an educator and, sometimes, performer. there are worse fates than to be remembered warmly as having made something better.

line up per louis smith’s comments at the end of track 1. at the
start of track 4, the announcer gives “george davidson” instead
of bert myrick, but i think louis smith knew who he was playing with.
