Show Info

New York's WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM and NPRmusic proudly present year two of The Checkout - Live at Berklee. Critically acclaimed, New York-based performers return to their Berklee roots and perform for the world from Boston's Cafe 939. Tonight's concert features Walter Smith III with Taylor Eigsti, Harish Raghavan, Clarence Penn, and Berklee alumni Matt Stevens. See the action in person, streamed live worldwide at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time on NPRmusic.org, or hear it in New York on WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM or wbgo.org. You can also listen to every show anytime after its airdate at Checkoutjazz.org and NPRmusic.org. From a young age, Walter Smith III began taking music very seriously: “My first gig was playing at a McDonald's in Houston with another saxophone player. I took a solo on 'Blue Bossa.' It was terrible. People clapped, and I figured if I could get away with that and get applause, how could I fail?” Smith has performed all over the world, in numerous national and international festivals and on famed stages in the U.S. such as Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. He has shared the stage and appeared on recordings with many jazz notables, including Terence Blanchard, Roy Haynes, Christian McBride, Eric Reed, Mulgrew Miller, Joe Lovano, Bob Hurst, Myron Walden, Walter Beasley, Lewis Nash, Terri Lyne Carrington, and a host of others. To date, he has appeared on more than 75 recordings that are released worldwide.
