About the Album

"Cyclone" is a track off of Wadada Leo Smith & John Lindberg's recent collaboration album, "Celestial Weather." With "Celestial Weather," the focus of trumpeter and composer Wadada Leo Smith’s collaboration with bassist and composer John Lindberg shifts to open duo improvisation, something they have often done in live performances but never before on a recording. "Cyclone" is part of a five-part suite that gives the collection its name, “Celestial Weather Suite”, was spontaneously created in the studio.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
