It's hard to say whether Smith has mellowed with age, or music writers have finally caught up to him. But he reports that questions these days have "impressed" him, from New York to Berlin to London. "Ten years ago, nobody would have asked me about the psychological meaning behind any piece. And not only that, even if they asked me and I told them, they wouldn't believe it." But now, readers can't plead ignorance. Whether you put these dates on your "jazz" or "classical" calendar—or even if you just place it on your "mind-bending art" calendar—consider Smith's Roulette performances among the most important concerts in New York this season.

Wadada Leo Smith's "Ten Freedom Summers," May 1-3, Roulette, 509 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, roulette.org
