Spiritual Jazz Now! Is the 13th volume in the acclaimed series and across the two volumes (24 tracks in total) we are presented with an overview of a clutch of contemporary exponents of Spiritual Jazz; musicians who are intent on bringing something personal to the table as well as recognising the importance of those who have paved the way for them. Featuring music from the past 20 years and from 15 different countries this series includes modern classics from veterans Steve Reid and Idris Ackamoor, providing a vital link between the past masters and the enlightened new generation.Pioneers such as John Coltrane, Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders et al, with their innovations in reaching another plane of consciousness remains uppermost in the minds of exponents of Spiritual Jazz: several of the artists featured on this compilation, such as Cat Toren and David Boykin, are practitioners of the art of music therapy and sound healing, and have absolute conviction in the role of song as solace. Well known artists such as Chip Whickham, Nat Birchall, Makaya McCraven, Wildflower, Idiris Ackamoor and Menagerie mix with maybe lesser heard acts on a sprawling selection of ageless new gems.
