Veteran saxophonist Gary Bartz joins forces with Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Young for the sixth installment of the Jazz is Dead series. Gary is fine fettle primarily on alto throughout on this fine piece of contemporary Jazz which links the tradition with modern production featuring real instruments. The uptempo ‘Black and Brown’, Hip hop influenced beats of the down tempo ‘Spiritual Ideation’, ‘Soulsea’ and ‘Blue Jungles’ and mid tempo ‘The Message’ are all highlights. ‘Visions Of Love’ has a really nice soulful feel with background vocals in the hook line. Really nice album from one of the masters of Jazz, and certainly one of the best in the series so far.
