Following in the footsteps of the classic Impulse- and Blue Note recordings, DEEP JAZZ is presenting Spiritual- and Modal-Jazz of the highest intensity! Beautifully executed musicality and fine-woven compositions are brought together in the six tunes on this mini-album – a wealth of righteous grooves that could just as well have been recorded in the late sixties!
The recording took place in one session at the musician-owned studio at Hermann-Lingg-Strasse in Munich in January 2008. Without any rehearsal the jazzmen (and of course jazzwomen) managed to create a very powerful vibe throughout all the tunes and also displayed their sensitive approach to the compositions, that they played for the first time!
The compositions, with the exception of Naima by John Coltrane, are all written by the musicians themselves, showing their ability to take the heritage and tradition of the past and create something new out of it.
