    James Tatum's stunning, spiritualised Contemporary Jazz Mass is one of the only true jazz masses ever released. Inspired by Duke Ellington's Sacred Concerts, Tatum's masterwork was recorded on its first ever performance at St Cecilia Church in Detroit, and released on his own private label in 1974. 

    N.B. The CD version of this release also includes Tatum's independent second release 'Live at the Orchestra Hall & Paradise Theater'.
