"Clearly, the music of Wadada Leo Smith is, like all music of strength, allure and self-acknowledged and unfolding mystery, a world unto itself. Whatever form, palette or context a project assumes, from his duets with Vijay Iyer or John Lindberg to ensembles of ever-varying scale and instrumental textures, we sense a dimensional duality involving both confidence and exploration in what he does.
Even so, forces and foundational elements from the "outside world" - particularly American landmarks - have been factoring into Smith´s projects in recent years, from the socio-racial politics of his Ten Freedom Summers and Occupy The World to projects in tribute to the Great Lakes and the National Parks. Now comes Najwa, a bold and new-minded visit to the plugged-in side of his aesthetic."
