Picture of COSMIC RHYTHM WITH EACH STROKE Vijay Iyer & Wadada Leo Smith - A Cosmic Rhythm with Each Stroke Source

Vijay Iyer has previously played extensively with Wadada in Smith’s Golden Quartet, but this album, produced by Manfred Eicher, is the first documentation of their duo work. The centre-piece of the album is the spellbinding title suite, dedicated to Nasreen Mohamedi (1937-1990), the innovative Indian artist whose improvisatory imagery evokes abstracted rhythms. Trumpet and piano interact here with creative sensitivity to tone, texture and space.
