Trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith and double bassist John Lindberg met in NYC to record this set of suites using an incredibly emotional palate of melodic, technical, and free playing, on a 2-part work for Malachi Favors, a 5-part "Celestial Weather Suite", and a 2-part "Feathers and Earth".

Smith, Wadada Leo / John Lindberg: Celestial Weather (Tum)

Label: Tum    
Released in: USA    


"With Celestial Weather, Smith and Lindberg employ a spare, conversational approach. Smith whispers on the mute and issues plaintive cries with the open horn. Lindberg bows and goes pizzicato. Smith searches for and finds very un-trumpet-like sounds-squawks and squeaks and whistles. Unlike Smith's large scale offerings, that often feature massive cacophonies, space is a major facet of the sound. It is music that is reflective and serene.

The disc's centerpiece, the five part "Celestial Weather Suite," features sections like "Cyclone," Hurricane" and "Typhoon," but the music is far from the cataclysms the titles might imply. The sound, as on the rest of the set, is thoughtful and patient, like raging winds filmed then set on slow motion, so the intricacies of the maelstroms can be better observed/heard. Celestial Weather is another worthy entry into Wadada Leo Smith's ever-growing library of numerous duo recordings."-Dan McClenaghan, allaboutjazz.com
