Smith, Wadada Leo - Eclipse DVD

This features the same band as on Tabligh: Wadada Leo Smith-trumpet, Vijay Iyer-piano and keyboards, John Lindberg-bass and Shannon Jackson-drums.

"Eclipse gives an outlook both modern and classic on a music that, from blues to socalled free jazz, simultaneously asserts its creativity and history, its structure and free improvisation. All these are born contradictions that feed the music of Wadada Leo Smith's Golden Quartet with energy and rare beauty. The music and the interviews are seamlessly woven together in a subtle manner, and the black & white filming helps one to concentrate on the musician's performances. This DVD is part of the Freedom Now collection. Each film was shot on location at a performance at the Banlieues Bleues Festival, and total freedom was given to the directors, whose films challenge the conservative codes of shooting musical performances"
