On Friday, May 9th, 2003 at 9PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (IMAC) in Huntington, Long Island will present a concert with Journey drummer Steve Smith’s band VITAL INFORMATION featuring special guest jazz saxophonist BILL EVANS.

After ten Vital Information recordings, including 1998’s Indie Award winning “Where We Come From”, Journey drummer Steve Smith, Tom Coster, Frank Gambale, and Baron Browne are back to show us where the band "lives today”. This process found them reinvestigating many different styles of music including New Orleans music, the blues, Bebop, R&B, soul jazz, and free jazz. Vital Information wowed IMAC audiences in their last appearance and we are happy to have them back.

The group’s founder and drummer STEVE SMITH, has a resume that stretches from Ahmad Jamal and Steps Ahead to Mariah Carey and Journey. It is no surprise that he won Modern Drummer Magazine’s #1 All Around Drummer award five years in a row. He is one of the most constantly evolving drummers on the scene today.

BILL EVANS will tour with Vital Information as their Special Guest in the spring of 2003. On this tour, Vital Information will be performing a combination of their own music along with selected Bill Evans compositions. Since Bill Evans joined the ranks of Miles Davis historic comeback band in 1980, Bill has recorded and performed with John McLaughlin, Herbie Hancock, Gil Evans, Lee Ritenour to name a few. He has continued to grace audiences with his distinctive style. He has not toured in the US for over 15 years so catch him in this very special performance.

Tickets for this performance are $35.00 ($26.50 for IMAC Members). For tickets or further information on this performance, or on other IMAC programs, call IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS.
