The duo of iconic trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith and pianist Angelica Sanchez returns to Greenwich House to play the first half of this mighty double-bill revolving around Angelica, long a Sound It Out favorite. Dusted magazine, reviewing the duo’s 2014 album “Twine Forest,” said: “Wadada Leo Smith and the superb pianist Angelica Sanchez produce a recital whose main ingredients are touch, feel, resonance and a real emphasis on the presence of a note, a chord. Smith’s trumpet playing is widely celebrated for possessing these virtues, but Sanchez convinces throughout with her musicality, restraint and creativity.”
This show’s second half will feature the pianist’s new trio with the great bassist Michael Formanek and ever in-demand drummer Tyshawn Sorey, with the group celebrating the release of their new Clean Feed album, “Float the Edge.”
