Entertainment Reviews:

The Wire - p.59
"Smith's horn playing is spacious and meditative, befitting his Rastafarian beliefs; it's as if he's creating a real-time dub mix of his own lines."
Down Beat - p.77
4.5 stars out of 5 -- "A piece named for the quartet's original drummer, Jack DeJohnette, splashes sonic colors, while the opening 'Rosa Parks' builds tension mightily behind Iyer's Rhodes and Jackson's multidimensional drumming."
JazzTimes - p.94
"To say the new lineup is powerful would be a huge understatement. Smith elicits a symphony of sounds from his trumpet....Bassist John Lindberg thumps and plucks so hard that he threatens to pop the woofers."

Product Description:

Wadada Leo Smith's Golden Quartet/Wadada Leo Smith: Wadada Leo Smith (trumpet); Vijay Iyer (piano, Fender Rhodes piano, synthesizer); John Lindberg, Shannon Jackson.
Personnel: Shannon Jackson (drums).
A Mississippi-born jazz trumpeter with an impressive avant-garde pedigree, Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith has been collaborating with avant-jazz luminaries like Anthony Braxton, Jack DeJohnette, and Henry Threadgill since the late '60s. Over the decades he's created a distinctive body of work that's as indebted to traditional West African and South East Asian folk music as it is to the taut, funk-inflected jazz of Herbie Hancock and John McLaughlin.
TABLIGH is Smith's third release with the Golden Quintet. Over the course of four expansive compositions Smith exhibits a stunning command of his instrument and a startlingly bright tone, over a set of moody, synth-heavy rhythms that evoke the atmosphere of Miles Davis's TRIBUTE TO JACK JOHNSON.
