    Hello Gang!.
    Came across this list:

    - Shabaka Hutchings picks 5 records that challenge the meaning of spiritual jazz: -
    "Following his the release of Wisdom of Elders – one of our favourite albums of 2016 – saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings identifies that even “spiritual jazz” is surrounded by a wall of preconceptions and picks five very personal records to help tear it down."

    Pura Vida!.

    There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind. ∞

    Shabaka's choices are excellent- and I have all of them. I would not have thought to put Cecil Taylor on the list, though.
    I'm not lazy. I just work so fast I'm always done.

    I would counter with McCoy Tyner's almost-entire 70's discography. (and he's not mentioned in the OP)

    I really would prefer Shabaka (love what he's doing) to stop using this "spiritual jazz" tag on 60/70's music altogether. It's total revisionism (the same way 'post-bop" is)...
    AFAIK, the term never existed back then.
    Some idiot journalist invented the term in the early 00's and for some stupid reason, it stuck around.
