A Chicago native, Mike Smith first became enthralled with jazz as an eleven-year-old beginning band student. And his dedication to the art form was so great that eight years later he won the coveted Charlie Parker Scholarship to North Texas State University. There Mike roomed with future notables Bill Evans and Jim Snidero, and earned a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance.
