This extemely rare Detroit Jazz Composers Ltd's album was originally released locally in Detroit in 1976, and has been digitally remastered. The deep underground jazz scene that existed in Detroit in the 1970s has proved to be a rich mine - full of hidden gems, lost classic recordings, small-cottage run collectively-run record labels, and spiritually aware and conscious music and artistry.

The Detroit Jazz Composers Ltd. is a one-off collective coming together of many of Detroit's superb jazz musicians together with one of Motown's finest soul singers, Kim Weston, alongside a full orchestra and choir - and is one of the most spiritually uplifting set of recordings you will ever hear.
