Professor Dr. Chris Smith

Recent performances include the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Dick Oatts Quintet, Troy Roberts, Randy Brecker, and Andrew Gould. When in New York City, I perform with the Birdland Big Band. Come catch us Fridays! 

As Professor of Jazz Drums at University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz, Austria I teach talented students and work with a world-class faculty.

I am a published author. My book The View from the Back of the Band: The Life and Music of Mel Lewis is the only biography on jazz drumming legend Mel Lewis.
