Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as “a gifted San Francisco bassist and composer whose alluringly original music draws on a rich range of classical, jazz and indigenous music,” Small’s work has been presented all over the world by major festivals and presenters, including Carnegie Hall, The Monterey Jazz Festival, and concert halls across Asia.
