Heart Trance Revelation is exactly that – full of Heart, entrancement, and a revelation of what a band of this calibre and creativity can manifest from its depths with little or no music in the way. Featuring timeless chanting, pure sound, thunderous drums, intense melodic leadership, powerful piano support, cosmic bass-full interweavings, and virgin creations from the entire ensemble. This drum-centered music is profoundly dear to my drummer’s heart. The combination of Billy Hart and Ra-kalam on drums is an ecstatic collaboration. Lam-Sobo John Medeski brings fearless, intuitive piano accompaniment. Don (Yaka) Pate and John (Chait) Lockwood bring esoteric bass speech. This specific ensemble makes this a unique and memorable recording of primordial sounds, musical wisdom, happy-free swing into burning space escapades, Heart-trancing singsong drum solos and duets, and Heart-opening tribal jazz love. Great date! Thank you Billy Hart and Ra-kalam. —Tisziji Muñoz
