I first saw Smith Dobson back when he played drums with the Square Roots in Santa Cruz. (he was only 17 year old at the time) He was the best drummer I had ever seen/heard and I haven't seen anyone "better" to this day. I can vividly remember watching them practice at the singer, Billy's house in Capitola and having my mind blown by Smith's veteran feel and razor sharp improvisational ability. He was a complete monster at reggae/ska/rock but with the schooling of the jazz upbringing. I can only imagine what he can do now with a couple decades passed. I'm excited to see him delving back into his rock "roots".
