Saxophonist Carlos Garnett’s second album was recorded from the Muse label in 1974. ‘Journey To Enlightenment’ is a strong 10 min long Spiritual Jazz track, that begins with Chant like vocals and then progresses into an instrumental piece featuring a blistering Sax Solo from Carlos, and lovely melodic keyboard solo from Hubert Eaves, before returning to the vocal chants again towards the end. ‘Love Flower’ a very funky Spiritual Jazz song featuring Ayodele Jenkins mesmerising powerful vocals. ‘Chana’ is the album’s best known track, a highly rhythmic bustling instrumental Jazz Dancer, which has been a popular floor filler on the UK Jazz Scene for many years.
