Journey to Enlightenment was recorded in September 1974, only eight months after Black love. The album again contains five self composed and arranged songs. Mtume and Reggie Lucas were retained from the earlier sessions and joined by their long time associates Hubert Eaves on Piano and Howard King on Drums plus Anthony Jackson on Bass. Ayodele Jenkins shares singing duties with Carlos himself, her powerful voice is mesmerising on Love Flower a very funky Spiritual Jazz song.

Journey to Enlightenment is a ten minute Spiritual Jazz track which starts with an almost chanted vocal section; it then progresses half way through into an instrumental piece featuring a blistering Sax Solo from Carlos, and lovely melodic keyboard solo from Hubert, before returning to the vocal chants again towards the end. Journey to Enlightenment consolidated Carlos position as band leader and a recording artist. His Earthy style of music has been more widely appreciated retrospectively and this album is highly sought after by Jazz Collectors on both its Original Vinyl and its very limited edition CD issue from 1999 which now commands a 100+ price tag.

We are delighted to present this album on CD as part of our Classic album series for the first time in fifteen years and for the first time outside of Japan , re-mastered and sounding fresher than ever. - Soul Brother
