Wadada Leo Smith’s in DC Reviewed

Source: The Washington Post.

Wadada Leo Smith’s music is among the most abstruse, demanding jazz out there. And organizing it into a four-hour, 19-part work like 2012’s “Ten Freedom Summers” doesn’t ease the effort. Hence, one doesn’t expect to go into a performance even of excerpts from that work and be deeply moved — but, at least on Wednesday night at Georgetown Day School, one would be wrong.
