Trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith remains as ambitious and creative as ever. Smith's Golden Quartet was formed - and its membership has shifted - to foster a particular kind of dynamic musical engagement. For this date, recorded at the RedCat (sic) in Los Angeles, Smith called upon the talents of pianist and keyboardist Vijay Iyer, bassist John Lindberg, and drummer Shannon Jackson. It reflects the ongoing influence of Miles Davis' electric work on Smith. A lone trumpet is heard at the outset, sparse, single-note phrases played with great restraint, but muscularity too. Iyer's Fender Rhodes enters very slowly and skeletally at first, coloring Smith's lines only slightly. His synth provides a "breathing" atmospheric sound under the Rhodes. Jackson enters with cymbals with Lindberg playing arco.
Wadada Leo Smith's first Golden Quartet record came as a happy surprise during a burst of activity. The five albums he released on Tzadik from 1999 to 2002 focused largely on his beautifully serene, long-form compositions. But 2000's Golden Quartet seemed to mark not just a new standing band for the trumpeter but an exciting new group within the first generation of Chicago's Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. The disc borrows material (as well as its title) from an excellent project Smith presented at Merkin Hall in New York in 2005. That concert combined his group (Iyer, Lindberg and Nasheet Waits) with a trio of Middle Eastern instrumentalists in a gorgeous suite of music commissioned by the Islamic World Arts Initiative.
