Wadada Leo Smith's Organic Resonance was formed in early 2008. The Banlieues Bleues Festival in Paris had asked Wadada to headline the program with a new project, which eventually turned up to be a beginning of a new perfmanent ensemble, which initially had two keyboard players (Vijay Iyer, and James Hurt), a guitarist (Nels Cline), an electric bassist (Skuli Sverrisson), and a drummer (Pheeroan akLaff) in its lineup. For the second trip to Europe last year (headlining the Saalfelden Jazz Festival), Brandon Ross had replaced Nels Cline.

Since then, the keyboards have been replaced with two guitars, plus an acoustic bass has been added, and the Firehouse 12 performance will be the first one to introduce this modified, unique Organic Resonance ensemble.

The Group will be recording at the Firehouse 12 studio the day after the concert and will be released later this year on Cunieform.
