Music is My Sanctuary

Staying with today's jazz theme, here is the soul jazz classic "Music is My Sanctuary" by Gary Bartz. This funky gem was the title track to Bartz 1977 album, which was producer by soul-funk masterminds Larry Mizell and Fonce Mizell (better known as The Mizell Brothers). Even though I tend to enjoy Bartz's earlier, more spiritual, recordings like Libra, Harlem Bush Music - Taifa, and Another Earth, this track highlight's one of the more standout moments during Bartz's later jazz funk years. Enjoy!
