Summer Solstice (180Gm Analogue)
Format: LP, Vinyl
From 1975, ‘Summer Solstice’ is an accessible mix of Spiritual Jazz and 70’s Jazz Fusion – think Lonnie Liston Smith meets Pharoah Sanders. Saxophonist Azar Lawrence is in fine fettle throughout. The Sanders vibe is prominent on ‘Novo Ano’, a track sandwiched between two fine jazzy grooves ‘From The Point Of Love’ and ‘From The Point Of Light’. ‘Summer Solstice’ is more intense highlighting Lawrence’s high octane, intense playing style. This top quality album concludes with the free flowing ‘Highway’. ‘Summer Solstice’ is an album of repeated highs and is an absolute hidden gem.
