Smith, Wadada Leo
Lake Biwa

Smith, Wadada Leo: Lake Biwa (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

Four ambitious new orchestral pieces written expressly for this release by one of the legendary masters of creative music. Featuring an incredible all-star band that includes Marc Ribot, Craig Taborn, Susie Ibarra, John Zorn, Jennifer Choi, Anthony Coleman, John Lindberg and many others, Lake Biwa presents some of Leo's most complex and stunningly original compositions. Lyrical and powerful orchestral colors, wild solos and, of course, plenty of searing trumpet work by one of the greatest players in the world. Still very much at the top of his form, this is one of Leo's most thrilling recordings.
