Wadada Leo Smith - trumpet, flugelhorn
Anthony Davis - piano
Malachi Favors Magoustous - bass


Reflectativity, first released on Leo Smith's own label in the early 1970s is one of the most important extended compositions blending improvisation and composition, and one of Leo Smith's masterpieces.

This exciting new version features the brilliant pianist/composer Anthony Davis (who performed on the original recording) and longtime friend and colleague Malachi Favors - the legendary monster bass player from the Art Ensemble of Chicago.

Coupled with several new compositions, this CD brings together the past and present of creative music's most continually fascinating composer/performers.
