We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds.
– Satchidananda Saraswati, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
Track of the day new in 1 luv: Matthew Halsall knows more about spiritual-jazz than most given that he is at the helm of the UK's leading label immersed in the style - Gondwana - and in his own playing his trumpet style particularly here taps that sound whether spiralling out in ever increasing circles from the In a Silent Way and droney classical Indo end of the spectrum to the floatier Alice Coltrane domain.
That's where Maddie Herbert comes into her own in a blend with flautist Matt Cliffe. The groove is unforced and yet probing in its serene insistence. Drawn from a new EP out next month. Matthew Halsall, photo: via Funky Fly
