Smith, Wadada Leo / George Lewis / John Zorn: Sonic Rivers (Tzadik)

Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Tzadik introduces its new SPECTRUM series with a very special and exciting new group featuring three of the most creative wind players in new music. Friends and colleagues since the '70s, these three musicians share a vision of improvisation and composition that is unique, virtuosic and cooperative. Performing compositions and collective improvisations, they sculpt sound and silence with masterly assurance. Surprising yet completely inevitable, this is an essential document of improvisational music in the 21st century by three contemporary masters."-Tzadik
