Dream Weapons present: TEN PORTALS OF INITIATION C90

Ten Portals of Initiation to what? To some spiritual jazz and the likes, originating from some time in between 1970-1980, of course. It’s not as deep as it may appear. I simply kept the cover art’s original title and added a «Ten» in front. I’m afraid to credit the original artist, as I once got in trouble for doing so (but I think it’s public domain). The musical content will probably feel like the natural continuation of a dozen or so previous jazz-themed mixes of mine (to those of you already familiar with Dream Weapons). But the tunes are as exiting and wondrous as ever before -Moahaha

1 Sir Edward - Peace K.D
2 Charles Tolliver - On the Nile
3 Buddy Terry - Stealin’ Gold
4 Solar Plexus - Spanish Sahara
5 Rena Rama - Rumanian Folk Song

6 Billy Robinson - The Family
7 Toshiko Akiyoshi - Notorious Tourist from the East
8 Harold Mabern - Alex the Great
9 Juhani Aaltonen & Otto Donner - Och det går, det går
10 Henry Franklin - Cosmic Dwellers



If you enjoyed these ten portals, here's thirteen links to over fifteen hours more finely selected jazz in more or less similar modes: Terrestrial Planets, Sunspots, The Hot Space, Numina, Swaying Vibes, Selenian Gardens, I Am the Resurrection, Celestial Space Inn, Per Aspera ad Astra, Sun Sprites, Music of the Spheres, The High Priestess and Fourth World (alternatively press the jazz-tag and you’ll find about twice as much great jazz of all kinds)
