✨✧ Wadada Leo SmithSolo – Reflections & Meditations On Monk ... CD
Tum (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith never fails to blow us away – and even though he's captured our ear with recent higher-concept projects or other group work, he sounds equally mindblowing here in a completely solo setting! As you'd guess from the title, the set's based around the musical vision of Thelonious Monk – territory not often explored on solo trumpet, and handled beautifully here by Smith – both on his long extrapolations based on Monk's compositions, and on his own tunes dedicated to Monk – which are these bold, brilliant paintings in sound that the legendary pianist would have been proud to hear. We're not sure what's in the water over at Smith's house, but he's really had this amazing blossom of fresh creativity in recent years – as you'll hear on his compositions here, entitled "Monk & His Five Point Ring At The Five Spot Cafe", "Monk & Bud Powell At Shea Stadium", and "Adagio Monkishness – A Cinematic Vision Of Monk Playing Solo" – alongside versions of Monk tunes that include "Ruby My Dear", "Reflections", "Round Midnight", and "Crepuscule With Nellie".

✨✧ Wadada Leo SmithNajwa ... CD
Tum (Finland), 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Wadada Leo Smith is really on fire here – on a record that feels a lot more like something from the early 80s underground than some of his earlier work – from the lineup of performers, right down to the overall sound of the set! The group's very heavy on guitars – and features work from Michael Gregory Jackson, Henry Kaiser, Brandon Ross, and Lamar Smith on the instrument – often criss-crossing and weaving these beautiful sonic textures – powerful, but never too noisy, and augmented beautifully by some surprisingly thoughtful bass work by Bill Laswell – whose at his most subtle and collaborative here. The rest of the lineup features Pheeroan AkLaff on drums and Adam Rudolph on piano – and Wadada's trumpet really soars to the skies on the longer tracks, which include "Ornette Coleman's Harmelodic Sonic Hierographic Forms – A Resonance Change In The Millenium", "Ronald Shannon Jackson – The Master Of Symphonic Drumming & Multi-Sonic Rhythms Inscriptions Of A Rare Beauty", and "Ohnedaruth John Coltrane – The Master Of Kosmic Music & His Spirituality In A Love Supreme".

✨✧ Bobby Naughton/Leo Smith/Perry RobinsonHaunt (with bonus track) ... CD
Otic/No Business (Lithuania), 1976. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the few albums cut as a leader by vibes genius Bobby Naughton – a player who's part of a very elite group of improvisers on the instrument – right up there with Walt Dickerson or Jason Adasiewicz for sheer imagination and individual sound! Bobby's talents are perfectly balanced here with key collaborator Wadada Leo Smith on trumpet and the great Perry Robinson on clarinet – a very angular trio that really makes the most of its individual components, and which provides a perfect showcase both for Bobby's vibes, and his strong sense of composition. Titles include "The Haunt", "Slant", "Places", "Rose Island", and "Ordette". CD features a bonus alternate of "Slant". CD

Choi Sun Bae/Junji Hirose/Motoharu Yoshizawa/Kim DArirang Fantasy ... LP
No Business (Lithuania), 1995. New Copy ... $22.99
A fantastic set of improvised material from the Japanese scene of the mid 90s – a performance that features visiting trumpeter Choi Sun Bae working with Junji Hirose on tenor and soprano, Motoharu Yoshizawa on electric five string bass, and Kim Dae Hwan on percussion! These three players may not be as well known to American audiences, but they sound wonderful next to Bae's incredible sounds on the trumpet – notes that have a range of shaping and inflection that matches the energy of Wadada Leo Smith at his best, but which also have a very individual character too. Hirose matches Choi for moodiness, but also keeps a bit more down to earth – creating a nice balance – and titles include "Korea Fantasy", "Remember Bird", and "Airang Fantasy". LP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition of 300!)
