Wadada Leo Smith Interview

Wadada Leo Smith

The trumpeter and composer Wadada Leo Smith made not one but two of this year’s standout jazz releases. “America’s National Parks,” a suite on two discs, features his Golden Quintet, made up of longtime associates like the pianist Anthony Davis and the drummer Pheeroan akLaff. “A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke” is a duo session with another colleague, the pianist Vijay Iyer, inspired by the art of the Indian modernist Nasreen Mohamedi.

The albums are sonically and temperamentally distinct, but they both have something to say about transformation, which Mr. Smith, a longtime member of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, considers central to his work.
