Charlie Smith, a good friend

Charlie Smith, a good friend
It is with great sadness we mention the passing of guitarist and philosopher, Charlie Smith, February 8th, 2008. Charlie was not only a phenomenally talented musician, he was a good friend of many musicians in Indianapolis and his hometown of Anderson, IN. In addition to doing session work for rippleFX, Charlie was a member of "The Bob and Tom Band" appearing on many CDs and live performances throughout the country. Among his many performances, Charlie was particularly proud of his appearance at The Montreaux Jazz Festival in 1997 with Steve Allee, Frank Smith, Stan Hillis and Chris Pyle. Charlie's own band, "The Charlie Smith Project" was a favorite at The Jazz Kitchen. Chris had the good fortune of being an original band member and played on Charlie's debut CD "Absolutely," selected as "Indianapolis' Best Smooth Jazz CD" of 1999 by NUVO Magazine. Bill also played with Charlie in the band "Smokehouse" every week for two years at The Slippery Noodle. Charlie was also a great conversationalist, speaking intelligently on topics ranging from music theory and composition to spirituality, physics, politics, psychology, philosophy and everything in between. He was truly a unique personality and will be missed by all who knew him. Read Charlie's obituary here and Bob and Tom's tribute here.
