I’m so glad that you are sharing this. I checked it out during the early fall when it was circulated and thought it was amongst the best of the year’s musical offerings. I hope Verve releases this but I thought the JC estate did not give its permission. Also I also love Dwight Trible — check out his recent work with Build An Ark – Love Pt.1

I have eight versions of “Naima” in my iTunes that I _really_ like and I’ve easily heard another ten or so that I like some but not enough to hold on to. All that, and Jose _still_ came up with a new and beautiful way to rock that melody. You gotta love it….

I ain’t trying to blow up your comment box Baba, but now I’m listening to “Equinox,” and damn, my man is bringing it! … I’m just hoping and praying that the new album won’t be completely on some ol’ grown ‘n sexy shit. We want the jazz, Jose. Jazz.

Reverence is what he gives when he faces East. His new one BlackMagic still shines the light. I believe as he music is. Thank you for all you share with us.

This is a beautiful album. Don’t try comparing it to Coltrane’s work. Just enjoy the hommage. And a great band
