  5. Wadada Leo Smith

    It was great. He actually gave us the incredible gift of a world premiere solo piece. This is the acoustically uninspiring environment of a conference. But the greatest thing was that the session next door to ours opened our door to complain ("We can hear that") and W didn't even flinch from his playing. AWESOME.

    FYI, Wadada just received the American Academy of Religion's award for religion and the arts this past weekend. Was a real privilege for those of us involved in getting him the award. He's really stoked about this recording and there is a ton of amazing stuff he's got on deck, including a 3cd solo release recorded in a 16th century Finnish church.

  14. I'm reviewing it for Dusted, so I got a promo from the label. 2.5 hours of glory.
  15. It's insanely good. Steve's been on a roll lately, but this one is crackling.
