Wadada Leo Smith’s Golden Quartet


The superb trumpeter and spiritually attuned composer presents the local premiere of Ten Freedom Summers. Based on the Civil Rights movement, the three-part work devotes sections to Brown v. Board of Education and the Little Rock Nine. Expect fluidly dramatic performances from tonight’s version of his ever-changing Golden Quartet, which includes Angelica Sanchez (piano), John Lindberg (bass), and Pheeroan akLaff (drums).
