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.
