Emanative - Dawn Child (Sunrise)

Spiritual jazz? Cosmic jazz? Introspective jazz? Well yes, all three actually. Dawn Child (Sunrise) comes from Earth, the 2018 album Nick Woodmansey and Emanative. Built around a droning sarod, it is at times an almost ambient invocation of the sun, lifting it from the formless void into the sky, ready for passion to begin. This is all about the writhing woodwind dance in the middle of the ritual circle as it finds its inner beauty. Jazz snobs may sneer at the full bodied production style here, but as Zorn once had it, they can eat shit. Just spectacular.
