Peace & blessings WOG & SOT,

We're honored to have been granted time to break bread with our Special Featured Guest Will "Saxman" Smith.  Our host Tonya E. aka Miss Right Now had the pleasure of meeting, speaking and witnessing his live perform last week.  She stated, " Mr. Saxman is such a humble, wise and young man.  He is definitely one to keep an eye on in the genre of Jazz.  He will be a household name and added to the list of great jazz musician. "

Mr. Will "Saxman" Smith ~ Within months of first touching the Alto saxophone instrument as a 12-year-old, he has emerged as a fine jazz saxophonist. He has also distinguished himself by playing blues, funk, hip-hop, and Afro- Cuban styles. Born in Norfolk, VA in 1992, Will lived there for only two years before he and his family moved to Charlotte, NC in 1994. He was served well by the magnet school program system (the Oaklawn/Moorhead school of Math and Science Technology). After being given a sturdy foundation in education, Will was given the opportunity to audition for the North West School of Performing Arts. He enrolled under the visual arts program. There he was introduced to his first Alto saxophone and immediately took to the instrument. Even with his upper respiratory difficulties (asthma), he auditioned for the Jazz ensemble and quickly became one of the leading musicians in the group. From the moment he started to learn the instrument, he never relaxed.   (biography permited by Manager Indigo Smith)
