SPIRITUAL JAZZ Vol 6: Jazzman’s Journey Continues

Gerald the Jazzman continues on his Spiritual Jazz journey with this – his sixth volume. As ever, he delivers an extraordinary collection which this time round focuses on vocal offerings that reflect the spiritually charged politics of the multi-dimensional African diaspora. What we get are an array of cross genre performances that defy the definition of a song. These artists channel the spirit and while the selection includes well known tracks like Gary Bartz’s ‘Celestial Blues’ and Pharoah’s ‘Prince Of Peace’ there are a host of more obscure gems like Clifford Jordan’s ‘John Coltrane’. In the mix we get to experience the lyrical visions of Max Roach, Charles Mingus, Sadaka, Norman Riley, E W Wainright, Linda Theus, Dr Haki R. Madhubuti, Eddie Gale, Byron Morris and, finally, the Rahsaan Roland Kirk inspired Vibration Society.

Lovingly restored from the original master tapes ‘Spiritual Jazz 6: Vocals’ comes as double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve or as CD with 24-page color booklet with archetypal in-depth liner notes, previously unpublished photographs and original stories direct from the master musicians involved.

As we all know Jazzman “DIG DEEPER”. WORD SOUND & POWER.
