Warren Smith has a long and illustrious musical history. One of his earliest major recording dates was with Miles Davis as a vibraphonist in 1957. In 1961, he co-founded the Composers Workshop Ensemble. In the 1960s, Smith accompanied Arethra Franklin, Nina simone, Lloyd Price, and Nat King Cole; he worked with Sam Rivers from 1964 - 76 and with Gill Evans from 1968-76. In 1969, he played with Janis Joplin and in 1971 with King Curtis and Tony Williams. He was also a founding member of Max Roach’s percussion ensemble, M’Boom, in 1970. In the 1970s and 1980s Smith had a loft called Studio Wis that acted as a performing and recording space for many young New York jazz musicians, such as Wadada Leo Smith and Oliver Lake. Through the 1970s Smith played with Andrew White, Julius Hemphil, Muhal Richard Abrams, Nancy Willson, Quincy Jones, Count Basie, and Carmen McRae. Other credits include extensive work with rock and pop musicians and time spent with Anthony Braxton, Charles Mingus, Henry Threadgill, Van Morrison, and Joe Zawinul.
