Wadada Leo Smith: Rosa Parks: Pure Love. An Oratorio of Seven Songs

Read "Rosa Parks: Pure Love. An Oratorio of Seven Songs" reviewed by John Sharpe


Trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith's prolonged late career flowering shows no sign of abating with the creation of yet another epic work, following on the heels of his monumental Ten Freedom Summers (Cuneiform, 2012), Great Lakes Suite (TUM, 2014) and America's National Parks (Cuneiform, 2016).

DarkMatterHalo: Cataclysmic Beauty

Read "Cataclysmic Beauty" reviewed by Nicola Negri


Non è un caso che il termine sound designer, con il quale si presenta il musicista elettronico Hardedge (al secolo Velibor Pedevski), sia usato solitamente per designare una precisa figura in ambito cinematografico, responsabile di progettare quell'insieme di rumori ambientali, foley e colonna sonora che contribuisce a dare sostanza alla narrazione filmica.

Wadada Leo Smith/ Hardedge: The Nile

Read "The Nile" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Avant-garde trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith has crafted epic sets, like the four disc Ten Freedom Summers (Cunieform Records, 2012), inspired by the Civil Rights Movement.
