CD Reviews

One of the best from innovative, yet underrated, trumpeter
11/06/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Underrated jazz trumpeter plays in a quiet mode, demonstrating his own technique of Ahkreanvention"--a creation of simultaneous jazz improvisation and composition. The end effect is more meditative than fiery, but not boring. Three long tunes make ample use of space and silence. Included in the band are Dwight Andrews (reeds) and Bobby Naughton (vibes); guests include Charlie Haden (bass), and both Lester Bowie and Kenny Wheeler who team up with Smith on "Tastalun" for three muted trumpets. Smith, now known as Wadada Leo Smith, sounds similar to trumpeter Bill Dixon and a contemplative Miles Davis. This album, from 1978, is difficult to find, but worth the search. I also recommend "Go in Numbers" (1980) and "Touch the Earth" (1979). A good recent effort is "Tao-Njia (1995)."
