Wadada Leo Smith & New Dalta Ahkri - Live in Florence '79

The New Dalta Ahkri (the name of the open groups led by Wadada
during the Seventies) stands out for a music that is always balanced
between written and improvised parts : Wadada's scores contain
only a part of what you're listening to, even if the first impression
is that the musicians read nearly all.
