Wadada Leo Smith & Joe Morris present Earth’s Frequencies

Time to start the new year. Legendary trumpeter and jazz great, runner-up for the Pulitzer Prize, winner, Guggenheim Fellowship winner, NEA Jazz Masters recipient, Wadada Leo Smith and one of the greatest authorities on improvised music, educator, our friend, guitarist, and double bassist Joe Morris together!

The album is a recording of a concert the two artists gave earlier this past year, on 12 February, during the famous ImprovisatioNOW concert series at Real Art Ways in Hartford, where audiences there can hear some of the most inspiring musicians in the American impro scene. Wadada is known to have played trumpet, Joe Morris on guitar. The result then was almost 50 minutes of fully improvised music, framed by five tracks.
