Wadada Leo Smith's Organic - Heart's Reflections



La música de Wadada Leo Smith's Organic aprovecha cuatro décadas de decantación, de maduración de la innovadora propuesta que Miles Davis presentara a fines de los sesenta, mezclando jazz con rock y funk. Heart's Reflections, segunda entrega del grupo que hiciera su debut en el segundo disco del álbum doble Spiritual Dimensions (Cuneiform, 2009), contiene estimulantes grooves, guitarras distorsionadas, sonidos etéreos del piano eléctrico Wurlitzer, bases rítmicas poderosas de puro rock. La interpretación del trompetista Wadada Leo Smith, miembro de la AAMC (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians) de Chicago desde sus inicios, es abstracta, reflexiva y destila espiritualidad. Entre sus acompañantes, destacan: Michael Gregory tocando encendidos solos en guitarra y Pheeroan akLaff impulsando con creativos polirritmos en batería. Wadada Leo Smith realiza en la actualidad la mejor relectura del período eléctrico de Miles sin perder personalidad. ****1/2
