"Anthony Branker" compositions are luxuriously packaged in both classical and jazz forms, blending and intermingling to the point of no longer knowing what planet we are on, except for that of an exceptional composer... Musical beauty in the service of thought, or perhaps the reverse Paris-Move. Composer Anthony Branker's ninth album for Origin Records is a re-issue of his debut recording for Sons of Sound Records in 2006. This was Branker's first recording as a composer/bandleader writing specifically for his ensemble, "Ascent" the first of his three collectives that would establish him as an important emerging writer and a force to be reckoned with in the world of modern post-bop jazz. Spirit Songs is a bold, spacious recording that showcases Branker's earlier compositions, rooted in modal harmonies, displaying a unique sense of lyricism and full of highly rhythmic grooves, based in the world of jazz but blended wit
