Wadada Leo Smith Needs Your Support On A New Project

Wadada Leo Smith, legend, composer, trumpetissimo extraordinaire, vital force in today's music, needs your support on a new project. It's a brand new composition in his acclaimed Ten Freedom Summers series (the first, newly recorded part of which I named my Album of the Year a short while ago--see below).

More specifically he needs $17,000 to complete and premiere the new work, entitled The March on Washington D.C.- August 28, 1963. It will mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. It will be the 22nd composition of Ten Freedom Summers, which the trumpeter has written over the past 34 years and calls "one of my life's defining works."

To donate to the project, log on to by Monday, March 11, 2013. Please paste the URL in your browser and hit enter. Help if you can!
