“Wadada Leo Smith – National Treasure.” – DownBeat Magazine
An innovative, much-admired trumpeter and composer for half a century, Wadada Leo Smith presents an expansive, politically charged suite that pays tribute to America’s national parks as well as cultural zones not yet recognized by the government. With his Golden Quintet (Pheeroan akLaff, drums; Sylvie Courvoisier, piano; John Lindberg, bass; and Ashley Waby Jesse Gilbertlters, cello), special guest drummer Andrew Cyrille, and spellbinding video by Jesse Gilbert, Smith explores and questions the luminous majesty, cultural histories, and violent realities of our natural areas—whether preserved, unprotected, or under attack.
