---------------------------------------------------------

This extemely rare Detroit Jazz Composers Ltd's album was originally released locally in Detroit in 1976, and has been digitally remastered. The deep underground jazz scene that existed in Detroit in the 1970s has proved to be a rich mine - full of hidden gems, lost classic recordings, small-cottage run collectively-run record labels, and spiritually aware and conscious music and artistry. 

Alongside the Tribe Records musicians' collective of Phil Ranelin, Wendell Harrison and Marcus Belgrave, Detroit was also home to Kenny Cox and Charles Moore's Strata Records, who released music by Maulawi, Lyman Woodard and Kenny Cox. There were also many other tiny bespoke labels releasing radical and progressive music from the city's underground scene. The Detroit Jazz Composers Ltd's Hastings Street Jazz Experience is one such classic lost deep spiritual jazz album. 

Perhaps more significantly Detroit jazz music connected to the city's own musical bag, be it the soul of Motown or the proto-punk of the MC5 or The Stooges -  Strata Records' Charles Moore played with MC5 and White Panther/MC5 manager John Sinclair was a key figure in the Detroit Artists Workshop for jazz musicians in the 1960s.

 The Detroit Jazz Composers Ltd. is a one-off collective coming together of many of Detroit's superb jazz musicians together with one of Motown's finest soul singers, Kim Weston, alongside a full orchestra and choir - and is one of the most spiritually uplifting set of recordings you will ever hear.
