Music is the Healing Force of the Universe

Download (Right Click)

Music is the healing force of the universe, its the door of the cosmos and there's some greats here to show you. The intergalactic Sun Ra, the larger than life composer and one of my favourite bassists Charles Mingus and the wonderful Albert Ayler all lead the cosmic way. Look out for serious groove both old and new. And it gets funky towards the end, ending as it had to with a classic Donald Byrd track. Oh and look out for a 19 year old Prince bringing the jazz-funk on keyboards.

“Be so good as to cease to cast yourself in fictions. Pinch yourself, or slap yourself across the face if that's what it takes, but understand, please, that you are nonfictional, and this is real life.”
