Enoch Smith Jr. – “Sweepin’ Through the City” (Video)

Enoch Smith Jr. is an outstanding pianist. Whether playing on an album or in the middle of a church sanctuary, the brother throws down. His compositional style involves beautiful chord structures that have that black church cadence that shapes his work in lovely ways that shape his play alongside musicians on the Hot Tone Label like Shirazette Tinnin, Mimi Jones, and Camille Thurman, or his own releases. It’s been a few years since we at Nextbop fell for Smith with his Misfits album, which we were just recently complimenting since Sarah Elizabeth Charles just released her album last month. Now as he’s poised to release Misfits II POP next month, Smith just dropped the music video for the first single, “Sweepin Through the City” featuring the always dazzling, aforementioned Charles on vocals. Check out the video after the jump.
