2019 Touchstone series release.
Recently described by Vijay Iyer as "one of the greatest recorded works of all time", Wadada Leo Smith s Divine Love counts as a classic by any definition. "His sound has strong resemblances to that of Miles Davis", wrote John Fordham in a five-star Guardian review, "but Smith has absorbed the approaches of all the bebop trumpet heroes and redeployed them within a bold, vital and often ritualistic setting." The composition "Tastalun" features three outstanding trumpet players, as Lester Bowie and Kenny Wheeler join Smith, and Charlie Haden plays soulfully on "Spirituals: The Language of Love." Recorded 1978.
