Forgotten Treasure: Gary Bartz “Celestial Blues”


Every now and then I gotta give Gary Bartz some love. After all, I did take the title of this site from the name of his classic 1977 record. For those who don’t know too much about the man, he is a saxophonist who played with Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Max Roach and others…

His track record includes over 20 records in a 30 + year career with timeless classics like “Music Is My Sanctuary” and “Celestial Blues”, flawless blends of african music, soul, jazz and funk.
