"Soul Jazz Records New Thing! is a history of Deep Jazz in the USA. Post-Civil Rights, Post- Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, Post-John Coltrane this album showed how musicians continued to develop musically, politically and spiritually in this time. Featuring heavyweight Jazz artists such as Alice Coltrane, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Sun Ra and Archie Shepp alongside many other less-well known, but equally important artists such as Rashied Ali (who played alongside John Coltrane) and Stanley Cowell (who started Strata-East Records along with Stanley Cowell). The music on New Thing! ranges from the deep street funk of 'Street Rap' and 'Funky AECO' to hypnotic eastern-influenced tracks such as 'Tibetan Serenity' and radical left-field tracks such as Rashied Ali and Frank Lowe's 'Duo Exchange'. This double CD and loud triple vinyl comes with extensive sleeve-notes, interviews and exclusive photos."
