Avant-garde trumpeter and composer Wadada Leo Smith is the focus of tonight's Thursday Night Feature on WXYC. Smith explores the symbiotic relationship between music and social movements, particularly the Civil Rights movement, and his compositions both comment on and contribute to historical events. Starting with last year's Ten Freedom Summers, a lifelong project that includes many pieces composed in the Civil Rights era, we'll backtrack through Smith's oeuvre, from his early Chicago years to recent works.
