Ever since John Coltrane recorded his spiritual masterpiece, the 1964 recording, A Love Supreme, numerous jazz musicians have found inspiration in a deeply spiritual brand of jazz. This edition of New Sounds features some representative examples, including Abdullah Ibrahim's "The Pilgrim," Pharoah Sanders's "The Creator Has A Master Plan," Keith Jarrett's "Ritual Prayer," and Jack DeJohnette's "Healing Prayer for Mother Earth."
