Deeply spiritual and uplifting jazz, and first time LP reissue - hugely recommended!
Of all the artists who recorded for the Black Jazz label, keyboardist and composer Doug Carn was the most prolific, releasing four albums for the imprint
1972’s Spirit of the new land, recorded when Carn was also working with Earth, Wind & Fire, was his second Black Jazz release, but the first one (of two) co-billed to his wife, vocalist Jean Carn and is arguably the most collectible LP in Carn’s catalog. the album features a star-studded cast of musicians includes trumpeter Charles Tolliver, saxophonist George Harper, trombonist Garnett Brown, tuba player Earl Mcintyre, and drummer Alphonse Mouzon
Pat Thomas’ liner notes include excerpts from a freewheeling interview with Doug Carn himself
