Steve Smith and Vital Information is an American jazz-fusion group led by drummer Steve Smith.
Come On In
"Come On In" is the fourth in a series of recordings documenting the new direction of Vital Information. In their 1998 recording Where We Come From, the band returned to the roots of U.S. Music. Reinventing their concept around the sound of the Hammond-B3 Organ with the rhythmic underpinnings of the organic soul/funk grooves of the 60's and 70's. In their double CD Live Around The World 1999-2002 the band developed their sound and evolved into a unique, powerhouse unit. Their prior record "Show 'Em Where You Live" reached into the richness of the history of U.S. Music and made a timeless statement about contemporary music in the USA. Featuring Modern Drummer Magazine Hall Of Fame drummer, Steve Smith (Journey, Steps Ahead ), Frank Gambale (Chic Corea), Tom Coster (Santana) this record is among the group’s very best recordings.
