- wadada leo smith's organic: heart's reflections
(2011, 2cd, usa, cuneiform records rune 330/331)
One year after his fabulous "Spiritual Dimensions" album, composer and trumpeteer Wadada Leo Smith is back with "Heart's Reflections".
"Heart's Reflections" pursues the path that was drawn on "Spiritual Dimensions".
Powerfull compositions alternate with spiritual, floating soundscapes. What Wadada Leo Smith's Organic band does, is rather hard to describe. There's funky rhythms with pumping basses on which different people solo, but there's also the very open moments where the trumpet is searching for sounds and melodies. And somehow, this fits together perfectly.
I love it.
