Out There

A guide to the explosive new avant-jazz scene

Damon Smith's biggest show of the month pairs him this Friday at Venue 9 in a duo and trio with 30-year veteran Wadada Leo Smith. With a mere 1 1/2 years' experience on the upright he admits, "I'm definitely a little bit nervous about it, but ... every gig is a learning experience." If nothing else, the younger Smith's courage and ambition should see him through. After all, he booked the gig. And now's the time for fireworks (or bombs).
