"This is a refreshing group of virtuosi whose memory of bebop and hardbop is leavened by the spirits of both Coltrane, and more particularly, Roland Kirk. Christiane is an excellent tenor saxophonist, with a warm broad tone and clean singing high notes which are highly emotive, and with someties a Trane cry in his sound ..." (Ian Carr - writer of liner notes)

  7. Lunar Tides
  8. Side Step
  9. Faith (mp3 - stereo)
  10. Dream Sequence
  11. Mango Jango

"New to me, this is an excellent band of young British hard boppers who play with flair and enthusiasm. The leader's playing (he is heard mostly on tenor) is inventive and committed. As he is also composer and arranger of all titles this is clearly a young man to look out for and hear whenever the opportunity arises. There is also a great deal of drive and swing from the rhythm section. I particularly liked the opening track, Sam's Boogie, the hint of menace in the introduction to Joy Of The Spheres, and the elegantly introspective Faith. I would like to be able to tell you something about these musicians but the sleeve note simply lists titles, personnel and a handful of credits and acknowledgements. As the album is self-produced they seem to have missed a good opportunity for some valuable publicity. Anyway, it's the music that counts and, here, it counts for rather a lot. I look forward to more where this came from. Very good sound."

As the 21st century dawned, the consciousness of Earths inhabitants moved towards a common goal. Realising their own inner power, a positive future was forseen establishing a new world vision; 'heaven is now'.

Enlightened- uplifting music channelled through the dimensions from a group of enlightened beings from the 'Pleiades'. This music was compiled from over four hundred hours of channelling by Kelvin Christiane and Philip Scragg over a period of two and a half years. The inner message throughout this music is to helping us to reach a new stage of evolution. Through working together in teams and becoming media and TV free........we will learn how to move beyond fear....

  8. Firefly
  9. My One And Only Love

The work of had evaded me, but on this evidence hi is an impressive writer, showing a thorough and creative command of contemporary idiom. His compositions are variously reminiscent of M-Base players like Greg Osby and Gary Thomas (Salute The Sun), latter-day Wayne Shorter (River) and the straightahead post - Coltrane tradition (swing on Journey, Latin on Firefly), and he shows a virtually unfailing instance for musical development. He has assembled a very proficient crew to deliver music which often demands great precision, and he has, in Angilley, a very good soloist. The leader is a capable improviser too, perhaps at his best on River. As if to remind us that he is a fully rounded musical personality, he closes the set with a mildly incongruous conventional reading of "My One And Only". Altogether an impressive showing for a not overexposed talent.

Great Spirit
Great Spirit Kelvin Christiane

From the moment you hear the punchy, Art Blakeyish ensemble exclamations of the opener by this classy British band you know you're in safe hands. It's appropriate that the young saxophonist and leader Kelvin Christiane should have made the second CD of his career for Danny Thompson's much-acclaimed new Jazz Label, devoted as it is to the independent spirits of British jazz - because Christiane is certainly one of them. A saxophonist and flautist who also studied composition at Leeds College of Music - a broad education reflected in the fact that all the tracks here are his own work - Christiane is one of the most promising of the players on the British circuit who take their inspiration from bop, Latin jazz and the great African - American soloists of the Fifties and Sixties.
