Jazz. Old friends except for opener. Mostly live sources; mostly unreleased. There’s a genre called ‘spiritual jazz.’ This seems to be a term coined to deal retrospectively with certain styles of aspirational, overtly mystical jazz. Since I predate that turn, all I can say is that this mix captures something of what this would mean for me, except that the daring implicit in composing in the instant moment trumps a narrow term. Yup, all jazz is spiritual jazz to me.
