Volumes 1-12 of Spiritual Jazz have revealed an array of vintage recordings from the '50s to the '80s. Now, Volume 13 turns to the modern scene, featuring 24 tracks across two 2LPs from 15 countries and released in the last 20 years. Legendary figures like John Coltrane, Sun Ra, and Pharoah Sanders have influenced the current exponents of the genre, including Steve Reid and Idris Ackamoor, as well as practitioners of music therapy and sound healing such as Cat Toren and David Boykin. This compilation demonstrates that the new wave of jazz is still full of life and holds a significant place in culture.
