Many artists achieve greatness but very few produce work that is so moving it’s considered sacred. Whether you choose to call them hymns, psalms or spirituals, their songs are a healing force for troubled times. We feel close to these prophets, in recognition of their uncommon labours. It is as if they have given all of themselves, body and soul, through music.

We can safely say that Jamman’s Spiritual Jazz series would not exist without the inspiration and leadership of the spiritual messiah that is John Coltrane. It can only be right and proper that they have dedicated a whole album to his legacy and lasting influence. Spiritual Jazz 15 – A Tribute to ‘Trane shines a spotlight on the reverence in which the saxophonist is held in so many ways.

On one hand the selection displays cover versions of his songs performed by the musicians he inspired; disciples to Coltrane the messiah, who chose to give praise to the one who laid a foundation for them. The listener will also encounter original music written in honour of Coltrane that underlines the endless presence he has had among artists from different backgrounds and eras.

The preacher may have ascended to a higher plane, but his congregation is still right down here on the ground. Ten songs to lift the spirits of everyone, everywhere.

Housed in a 2xLP gatefold sleeve with pictures and liner notes by Kevin Le Gendre. Includes download code. This album is an absolute pleasure to play all the way through.
