Album Review

Smith, Wadada Leo Golden Quartet – “Tabligh” – [Cuneiform]

Cousin Mary   8/8/2009   CD, Jazz

Recorded live at the 2005 Cal Arts Creative Music Festival, Wadada Leo Smith???s trumpet soars on this gorgeous, dark, intense 4-track album. Fine contributions from keyboardist Vijay Iyer, drummer John Lindberg and bass Shannon Jackson.

More than occasionally reminiscent of Miles Davis, very fine modern jazz, highly recommended.
