Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith has been active in the creative contemporary music world for over 30 years. A trumpet player, multi-instrumentalist, composer and improviser, his original theory of jazz and world music has been significant in his musical development as an artist and educator. Born in Leland, Mississippi, Smith's early musical life began in high school concert and marching bands. At the age of 13, he became immersed in the Delta Blues and improvisational music traditions. As an improvisor-composer, Smith has studied a variety of music cultures (African, Japanese, Indonesian, European and American) and to fully express this music, he has developed an original theory and notation system for jazz and world music which he calls Ankhrasmation.

One of the new crop of emerging acts, Ian Smith employs a careful, unhurried delivery that conceals a nicely pointed attitude with a sack full of neat gags to match.
'Fantastically funny' (The Times)
'Star of the future' (Time Out).
'... delightfully offbeat writing, a mastery of phrasing and summons up some fine comic images. A talent, for sure' (http://www.chortle.co.uk).
