Gary Bartz & Maisha come to Metronome on Thursday 30 April.

Legendary saxophonist and composer Gary Bartz’s influential music will be brought to life alongside the musicians of Maisha; the UK’s leading spiritual jazz outfit.

On his musical journey – spanning from his days as a sideman to Charles Mingus, Max Roach, Miles Davis and Art Blakey, to a solo career marking him as the luminary of the 1970s fusion movement – Gary Bartz recorded impactful albums such as 1969’s Another Earth, which took inspiration from John Coltrane’s classic 1965 record A Love Supreme.

Music embodies a high purpose for Gary Bartz, a man totally dedicated to the furtherance of black Americans and their musical heritage.

Gary formed his Ntu Troop in 1969 (Ntu is a word from the Bantu language, where as a noun, suffix, and common denominator it unifies all things—time and space, living and dead, seen and unseen forces. Seminal works included Harlem Bush Music (Taifa and Uhuru), and  were great commercial successes.

He was among the jazz giants who appeared at the 7th International Montreux () Jazz Festival in July 1973. The music he created that night is available on a double LP, I’ve Known Rivers and Other Bodies. It has been his best-selling work to date, and received wide critical acclaim.

Brought together with spiritual jazz outfit Maisha led by Jake Long by gilles Peterson in 2018, this special collaboration was recorded direct to disc in 2019 for Nightdreamer Records, to be released this spring.
