Instrumental Prayers

Charles Lloyd's recent CD Lift Every Voice--containing spirituals, folk songs, hymns, standards, love songs, and protest songs--is partly in response to the cataclysmic events of September 11, 2001. The veteran saxophonist had been due to open at the Blue Note in New York on that day, as reflected in the sorrowful yet hopeful "Hymn To The Mother," featured on this edition of New Sounds. Other selections continue this spiritual thread, including the Andy Statman Quartet's "Maggid;" Keith Jarrett's "Hymn" and "Spirits;" and Misha Alperin's "Psalm #1."
