Navigating seamlessly from jazz to metal to punk to art-rock to electronic music to Haitian voodoo drumming, over the years he has worked with Secret Chiefs 3, Trevor Dunn, Xiu Xiu, John Zorn, John Tchicai, Marc Ribot, Fred Frith, Mr. Bungle, Terry Riley, and many others. Tonight Smith presents his exciting new ensemble Ches Smith & These Arches, featuring Tony Malaby, Mary Halvorson, and Andrea Parkins.
