Flute/vocal meditation loops to bring you to a deep zone from one of weirdo crew Spires that in the Sunset Rise.
This was talk about at the time as a bit of a sequel Mainliner’s classic Mellow Out. I played it at a job once was asked if I was listening to a factory on fire.

Jonah Parzen-Johnson – Imagine Giving Up (We Jazz Records)
Brooklyn based baritone saxophonist Jonah Parzen-Johnson presents his new work “Imagine Giving Up” on Helsinki’s We Jazz Records. The album, to be released on 17 January 2020 sees Parzen-Johnson move into new domains of sound as he uncovers newfound energy and pulse in his music. In addition to the sonically rich analog synth elements that accompany his earlier solo saxophone work, Jonah has layered heavily sound designed samples of his own saxophone to create truly one of a kind percussive snaps, reverberant basses, and warbling leads.
James Elkington – Ever Roving Eye (Paradise of Bachelors)
