Multi-instrumentalist and founder member of the Ritual Trio, and Ethnic Heritage Ensemble Kahil El’Zabar joins force swith long time collaborator saxophonist David Murray as well as bassist Emma Dayhuff and keys player Justin Dillard on this 7-track offering of spiritual jazz. The hypnotic, lengthy opener ‘In My House’ spans over 20 minutes and has both an intimate feel while also being an expansive, meandering groove, carried along by Zabar’s ever escalating, chant-like vocals. The punchy, funkier ‘Nektar’ nods to James Brown in Zabar’s ‘Open Up The Door’ rap, Murray’s muscular sax add a toughness to the sparse but engaging ‘Songs Of Myself’ while the sound is stripped back even further on the beautiful, Eastern vibe of ‘Katon’. ‘In The Spirit’ has a gentleness that comes from the sketched-in piano lines while the brilliant ‘Trane In Mind’ is an urgent, hard driving slab of jazz dance. The atmospheric ‘One World Family’ ends this highly engaging album on a 15 minute high.Brilliant set that will reward the time spent absorbing this.
