Spring Heel Jack and Wadada Leo Smith
The Sweetness of the Water

Spring Heel Jack, aka John Coxon and Ashley Wales, bring in American avant-jazz composer and performer Wadada Leo Smith for a fabulous session of electroacoustically-tinged modern improvisation. And look beyond the headline artistes of The Sweetness of the Water and you’ll even find guest appearances by the likes of Evan Parker and Mark Sanders! Plenty of chops here.

Andrew Cyrille, Wadada Leo Smith, Bill Frisell
Lebroba

The trio of Wadada Leo Smith, Andrew Cyrille and Bill Frisell have laid out this sublime set for the ECM label, and if you like music that grounds itself in jazz, blues, West African music and carefully-felt free playing, you’ll enjoy this first-time combination. Drums, trumpet, guitar, and three great musicians playing together: that’s Lebroba.

Spring Heel Jack and Wadada Leo Smith
Hackney Road

Ashley Wales and John Coxon - the duo of Spring Heel Jack and Treader Records - have long liked a bit of free jazz. Makes sense, then that they’ve got Pulitzer Prize-nominated trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith in to toot his horn alongside them on Hackney Road. The six parts of this LP are a thick, syrupy brew, bringing to mind the paranoid freakouts on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly as well as the more obtuse bits of Dean Blunt’s output.

Wadada Leo Smith, Jamie Saft, Joe Morris, Balazs Pandi
Red Hill

An impressive quartet of free-expressive outsiders assemble here for an LP of intuitive fluid tranquility and aggressive skronk'n'plink free jazz. Avant-garde trumpet legend Wadada Leo Smith is central here, with Slobber Pup bandmates Jamie Saft, Joe Morris and the remarkable Hungarian percussionist Balasz Pandi fill the rest of the slots on keys, upright bass and drums respectively.
