Read "Tabligh" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Parlare dei numerosi punti di contatto fra la musica di questo ottimo album del trombettista Wadada Leo Smith e i capolavori elettrici di Miles Davis dei primi anni settanta potrebbe sembrare riduttivo per l’arte sopraffina di Smith, ma non è affatto così.
