Chris Spector, Midwest Record

GENE ESS/Apotheosis: The jazz guitarist that’s been making some compelling records for a while now veers off to a spiritual track saluting those who endure. The music is more inner directed than past releases but no less accessible and doesn’t trail into new age territories. A different kind of set that doesn’t borrow from past spiritual jazz efforts, you can look at it as a new kind of fusion that has it’s roots in Oriental sensibilities and goes outward from there. An interesting ride throughout.
