Brilliant compilation of early 70's deep spiritual jazz from the vaults of Mainstream records!!!

Frank Foster’s legendary title track sets the tone with forward thinking jazz sounds and a political message. Similar lines of thinking from Harold Land – two tracks from his legendary group with Bobby Hutcherson – and Roy Haynes are also featured. We have obscure but fantastic playing from Hadley Caliman, Buddy Terry and Charles McPherson and a rare date as a leader from the excellent Johnny Coles. Legends of soul jazz appear in the form of Blue Mitchell and Mike Longo with a previously unreleased version of ‘Matrix’.
