Learn the history of Spiritual Jazz with this 12-hour mix

In one of the more ridiculous things you’ll listen to today (or should we say listen to a fraction of today), here’s a 12(!)-hour mix of Spiritual Jazz. The mix takes in music from 1957 to the modern day and features the likes of Sun Ra, Herbie Hancock and other, lesser known names. The mix was compiled by Black Classical for The Jazz Meet. It dates back to August last year (here’s Gilles Peterson bigging it up) but has been rediscovered this week thanks to the power of social media, and it’s more than worth a re-visit.
