James Tatum: Jazz Mass (Jttp)

Having converted to Catholicism James attempts here to explore the religious ecstasy of “Mass” though the medium of Jazz. Weather your into Jesus or not there is a strong argument for the influence Jesus and his Dads book have played in many forms of music throughout the ages. As you may have gathered from the cover (Which was also released in colour although I’m uncertain of which came first, colour or B/W) James is a fairly fly cat and manages to create some wonderful moments throughout this LP. Apparently Peterson intends to comp a cut from this LP on his next release “Diggs America 2”.The track selected here is titled Alleluia, a choral piece with a deeply spiritual workout kicking in half way through the cut.

“Alleluia”
