Whitfield Extended TONIGHT at SMOKE!

April 5, 2012

Mark Whitfield has been dubbed “The Best Young Guitarist in the Business” by the NY Times and in September of 1990 Warner Bros. released his solo debut, “The Marksman”. The success of that release led to a recording career that has produced 14 solo projects to date and a myriad of collaborative efforts with some of the most important artists in recent years; Sting, D’Angelo, Mary J. Blige, Chaka Khan, John Mayer, Jill Scott, Roy Hargrove, Diana Krall, Lauryn Hill, Sy Smith and Chris Botti.
In September of 2005, Mark Whitfield accepted the invitation to join the faculty at his alma mater, teaming up with Joe Lovano, Ralph Peterson, Danilo Perez, and Terry Lynn Carrington as “Artists in Residence” at the Berklee School.
These days Mr. Whitfield is on the road with Whitfield Extended, a hard bop quartet featuring sons Davis Whitfield on Piano, Mark Jr. on Drums, and Bassist James Genus. You can check them out tonight at Smoke for three lively sets.
