Jonathan Smith first played guitar at 4 years old. After hearing saxophonists Eddie Harris and Robert Hutchens, he was inspired to pursue jazz. In his early 20‘s he took up tenor saxophone, playing for a couple of years in a Portland jazz quintet.
Smith has had the good fortune to meet and learn from many guitar masters, including: Anthony Wilson, Dan Balmer, Bruce Forman, Ron Eschete, John Stowell, Mike Bloomfield, Graham Dechter and Diego Figueiredo. He also recalls a memorable impromptu lesson with the great Bucky Pizzarelli. Smith cites many influences and inspirations: Charlie Parker, Robert Hutchens, Jimmy Heath, Christine Jensen, Ingrid Jensen, Benny Green, Randy Johnston, Dan Faehnle, Terry Haggerty, Wycliffe Gordon, Alan Jones, and the list goes on…
