Straight No Chaser - A Jazz Show

Welcome to Straight No Chaser, the Award-winning Podcast hosted by Jeffrey Siegel

Apr 8, 2011

Our annual Spiritual Music Podcast features music from faiths from across the world (or in Sun Ra’s case, across the universe). I hope you’ll find something moving in the various songs I’ve selected, including music from:


Jonas Hellborg – “Be! And All Became” from The Word.


Johnny Griffin Orchestra – “Meditation” from The Big Soul Band


Youssou N'Dour – “Allah” from Egypt.


Alice Coltrane – Title Song from Transcendence


Avashai Cohen – “Shalom Aleichem” from Sensitive Hours. The title of the song is in Hebrew, and comes from a Sabbath prayer, which is roughly translated as “Shalom (Peace) upon you, O ministering angels, angels of the Exalted One--from the King Who reigns over kings, the Holy One, Blessed is He.”


Sun Ra – “Enlightenment” from Unity.


John Pattitucci – “Love Eternal” from Songs, Stories & Spirituals.


Leon Gardner – “Be There” from Spiritual Jazz.


Oscar Peterson – “He Has Risen” from The Easter Suite.
