    • 7. Awakening - Epilogue

    The Awakening are the heaviest of all the groups to release on Black Jazz Records - this is simply a spiritual jazz classic album - every track is superb. This is also one of the RAREST of all Black Jazz albums - never reissued and super deep - 100% ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!

    A spiritual jazz classic from The Awakening that sees the group making sidesteps into the freer jazz zones - quite natural for band pianist Ken Chaney and saxophonist-flautist Ari Brown, given their involvement with the Afro-centric AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Music) - essential!
