Contemporary jazz pianist and composer Knick Smith has toured with Stanley Clarke, Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah, Kenny Garrett, Kirk Whalum, George Duke, Roy Ayers and more. Nick chose to be a Jazz Pianist because Jazz is a spiritual, versatile, and challenging art form. His playing style is precise, free flowing, and rhythmically diverse. In 1995, Nick appeared nightly on the Tonight Show featuring Jay Leno. After leaving the Tonight Show, Nick built a home studio and began recording. He has released three full length albums and a handful of radio singles.

Despite a lack of formal training, Dennis Chambers has become well known among drummers for his technique and speed. Chambers exhibits a powerful style that is technically proficient, yet highly musical and groove-oriented. He was recruited in 1981 by the Sugar Hill Label to be their “house drummer.”
