Wadada Leo Smith Interview

Wadada Leo Smith’s 80th Birthday celebration continues with the release of The Chicago Symphonies and A Love Sonnet for Billie Holiday. This special show includes a lengthy excerpt from my interview with Smith in May 2021, in which he discusses the artist’s responsibility to society. It was an extraordinary privilege for me and I am very proud to share his wise words with you. With tracks from his two new albums featuring Jack DeJohnette, Vijay Iyer, Henry Threadgill, John Lindberg, and Johnathon Haffner.
