"Paying tribute to the population of New Orleans in the wake of hurricane Katrina which struck in August of 2005, the Andrew Lamb Trio recorded New Orleans Suite. Remixed and re-released five years later, Suite allows saxophonist Andrew Lamb, drummer Warren Smith and bassist Tom Abbs to remind everyone that the people who survived the hurricane still struggle, without homes or communities. Their way of life disappeared in the winds and waters of the tempest and their cries for help go unheeded, the reasons attributable to the endless politics that stifle the area's recovery. Introducing and creating the disposition of the music is a poem recited by drummer Smith, whose words to "Dyes & Lyes" directly point to the sources of inaction, in the person of former President George W. Bush.

The music implies the blues, but not a completely demoralized state. The bass and drums are largely responsible for maintaining the character of the record. The bass tonalities are deep; the pizzicatos strong and healthy; the smooth and thorough bowing contributes to the texture of the music at hand. Smith's rattles, chimes, triangle, wood clappers, toy xylophone, and other percussion instruments in addition to his drum set diversify the sound, yielding the lively unpredictability in the music's flow. A bellowing gong introduces "Song of the Miracle Lives;" a blown whistle and marching snare figures combine to form "a second line" theme in the last "Aftermath Healing."

Having composed music that unfolds a credible story, Lamb plays sax, clarinet, flute and harmonica, which become the dramatic voices, even though it is Smith's actual voice that is heard throughout the record. As in the expressively intense "Rescue Me," the horns sing of the displaced and disenfranchised, weakened by the unavoidable tragedy which Katrina bore."-Lyn Horton, JazzTimes

Artist Biographies:

"Warren Smith (born May 14, 1934) is an American jazz drummer and percussionist, known as a contributor to Max Roach's M'boom ensemble and leader of the Composer's Workshop Ensemble (Strata-East).

Smith was born May 14, 1934 in Chicago, Illinois to a musical family. His father played saxophone and clarinet with Noble Sissle and Jimmie Noone, and his mother was a harpist and pianist. At the age of four he studied studied clarinet with his father. He graduated from the University of Illinois in 1957, then received a master's degree in percussion from the Manhattan School of Music in 1958.

One of his earliest major recording dates was with Miles Davis as a vibraphonist in 1957. He found work in Broadway pit bands in 1958, and also played with Gil Evans that year. In 1961 he co-founded the Composers Workshop Ensemble. In the 1960s Smith accompanied Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Lloyd Price, and Nat King Cole; he worked with Sam Rivers from 196476 and with Gil Evans again from 1968 to 1976. In 1969 he played with Janis Joplin and in 1971 with King Curtis and Tony Williams. He was also a founding member of Max Roach's percussion ensemble, M'Boom, in 1970.

In the 1970s and 1980s Smith had a loft called Studio Wis which acted as a performing and recording space for many young New York jazz musicians, such as Wadada Leo Smith and Oliver Lake. Through the 1970s Smith played with Andrew White, Julius Hemphill, Muhal Richard Abrams, Nancy Wilson, Quincy Jones, Count Basie, and Carmen McRae. Other credits include extensive work with rock and pop musicians and time spent with Anthony Braxton, Charles Mingus, Henry Threadgill, Van Morrison, and Joe Zawinul. He continued to work on Broadway into the 1990s, and has performed with a number of classical ensembles.

Smith taught in the New York City public school system from 1958 to 1968, at Third Street Settlement from 1960 to 1967, at Adelphi University in 19701, and at SUNY-Old Westbury from 1971."
