We return from our long hiatus to pay tribute to the immortal spirit of Joseph Jarman, its departure from his body having been reported to us all yesterday. A guiding force of the AACM and a master musician with the AEoC and beyond, his life and work is an inspiration to us all. We will not miss what we still have. #life #music #aacm #artensembleofchicago #josephjarman #spiritualjazzhats

Our friend @stevegunnstevegunn was kind enough to draw our attention to this pic of the great Andrew Cyrille in action! It’s a pleasure to see the #master at work and to greet all our new followers! Welcome! #music #life #jazz #openness #listening #drums #drumming #drummers #andrewcyrille #spiritualjazzhats

We’ve been a little quiet lately but we’ve been thinking about the brilliant and forever-exploring Wadada Leo Smith! His new ECM release with Andrew Cyrille & Bill Frisell is truly captivating! #life #music #sound #trumpet #wadadaleosmith #spiritualjazzhats

We are heartbroken to learn of the passing of the great Roy Hargrove, who left this world far too early. We are thankful for the music he leaves behind us, which will carry us forward. Music, like life itself, is a gift. Play your life! #music #life #love #jazz #trumpet #royhargrove #spiritualjazzhats

We’ve been grooving a lot of Cannonball Adderley lately, and a few things have come to mind... In addition to having a discography remarkable in its diversity, and being perhaps one of the most fun-to-listen-to horn players ever, Cannon had a natural connection with his audience and a sense of self-possession that made him always worth hearing when he was just onstage rapping. He’s still talking to us. #music #jazz #life #altosax #rap #stage #patter #cannonballadderley #spiritualjazzhats #mercymercymercy

We’re way out East for this #pharoahfriday - recalling the legendary time that a young Pharoah played 2 nights in #Japan with Trane! We hope your weekend is full of exploration! #life #music #jazz #sound #explorations #tenorsax #pharoahsanders #spiritualjazzhats

Happy Birthday to the singular, self-defining creature who walked this earth as Thelonious Sphere Monk. You will forever exist as a testament to the ability of humans to willfully generate a new conception of reality from within themselves, despite forces external and internal. We thank you! #music #love #creativity #humanity #happybirthday #theloniousmonk #spiritualjazzhats

We’ve got our friend @jeffboyd01 to thank for today’s #sunrasunday image, from the great “Hours After” LP... we daresay it appears that the #Master is striking the original #psyjazz pose... only fitting for the inventor of #noise! Somebody tell @inzane_johnny! #sunrasunday #sunra #sunraarkestra #magic #life #consciousness #alterdestiny #spiritualjazzhats

Today we’ve got the great ones from Detroit, Tani Tabbal & Spencer Barefield, aka two thirds of their simply unclassifiable trio along with the (regrettably un-hatted, but no less amazing) Anthony Holland, to say nothing of the legendary ensemble Griot Galaxy! Expanding concepts of jazz-based improvisation is what they’ve always been about! If you run across a record with them on it, here’s a hot tip: buy it! #music #life #improvisation #detroit #dia #diegorivera #expanded #vocabulary #transdimensional #space #window #griot #galaxy #tanitabbal #spencerbarefield #spiritualjazzhats

We’re dreaming of the #master this evening: the great Billy Higgins, within whose long career was encompassed a history and advancement of drumming within the #jazz idiom. #drumming #drums #drummers #music #life #eternity #searching #billyhiggins #bridgework #spiritualjazzhats

Hats off to our friend @z.bach for delivering pics of the extremely infrequently chapeau-d Larry Coryell! In a frenzied performance with the once-in-millennium Jazz Composer’s Orchestra, we couldn’t help but get caught up in a wave of enthusiasm! And hats off to all of you for making us believe that anything is possible! #music #life #love #jazz #composers #orchestra #barefootboy #larrycoryell #spiritualjazzhats

Well, we never could find an image of Larry Coryell in any happening headgear, but Alphonse Mouzon delivers enough style for two! #music #life #jazz #fusion #guitar #drums #friends #backtogetheragain #alphonsemouzon #spiritualjazzhats

All any musician- any artist -wants is the freedom to create and an audience willing to extend the grace of a suspension of judgement. To have an open heart in such times as these is the most profound act of courage we can imagine. We invite our friends to contemplate the consequences of mercy and its opposites today. With all our love- SJH 💛✌️💛 #music #art #life #idrismuhammad #spiritualjazzhats

Today we join so many in saying goodbye to the mighty Randy Weston, who has left us after 92(!) years on this planet... As a player, composer, and tireless educator he has expanded the language of the music most commonly called jazz and given the world so much wonderful music of his own. He will forever remain an inspiration! #music #jazz #life #african #rhythms #open #piano #composer #randyweston #spiritualjazzhats

Friends, we suggest you follow the lead of @moistpaula and spend the weekend doing what you love! In addition to being amazing slinger of the baritone sax, she’s staking a claim as one of the foremost experimenters of the EWI- check out her account for details on her upcoming gigs and releases— she’ll take you places you never thought existed! #sound #life #breath #dimensions #unknown #ewi #experimental #music #moistpaula #spiritualjazzhats

We dedicate this post of Albert Ayler, the Holy Ghost, as he is sometimes called, to those beautiful souls whom we could not save, those who could not endure this world, to whom we owe much and without whom we are less than we were for their absence. If you are hurting, tell a friend, tell a stranger, but tell someone. We are an audience. We are listeners, all of us. We love you. You are not alone. #life #love #music #vision #listening #ghosts #albertalyler #spiritualjazzhats

we want to join our friends @marionbrownofficial & @analog_al1973 in saying happy birthday to the stellar Bennie Maupin! His sound is so distinctive and he’s made so many great albums the richer for his playing... thank you Bennie! 💛✌️💛 #music #life #jazz #love #tenorsax #flute #jewel in the #lotus #bitchesbrew #benniemaupin #spiritualjazzhats
