Wadada Leo Smith - one of the most original, versatile, dynamic
and soulful trumpet players of his generation. His masterful tone
opens portals that explore new sonic environments and lost worlds. Ambient space music above with the deep Delta blues below. He was born in Leland, Mississippi. an early corroborator with the AACM in Chicago, also worked with Anthony Braxton, Marion Brown, Jack DeJohnette, John Zorn and many others.
With many documented recordings under his own name, he stands today as a musical / cultural icon, caught here in duet with bassist, Bill Laswell.

Yes,yes,yes! I've been waiting for Dave to do this again...two brilliant runs by DDQ and Keystone were documented on Greenleaf back in the day; they were groundbreaking...recorded and released within 24 hours for each set...they were stellar performances and I play them again and again.
With absolutely no chance of ever being there, this is the closest i'll ever be to 'being there'...so excited I may need to lay down in a darkened room for a while! John Cratchley
