Various ‎– Spiritual Jazz - Esoteric, Modal And Deep Jazz From The Underground 1968-77

The first release in a series of compilations on various aspects of spiritual/deep/modal/soul jazz, this cd includes various underground and not too well-known jazz artists and bands from the late 60s and early 70s, most of whom showcase dark jazz and many times with ethnic vibes. My favorite tracks include Lloyd Miller's beautiflu santur-based jazz version of an Iranian traditional song, South African Ndikho Xaba's deep vamp, and the one by Ohio Penitentiary 511 Jazz Ensemble, which consisted of prisoners. 2008 cd by Jazzman/Spiritual Jazz.
