Italian guitarist, bandleader, crate digger and DJ Nicola Conte identifies Let Your Light Shine On as a celebration of African American spiritual jazz.

"You could call it spiritual or cosmic Afro-jazz," writes Conte in the publicity bumph accompanying the new album. "I'm interested in the Afrocentric approach that such artists as John Coltrane and such labels as Strata-East carried forward in the Protected content and Protected content . Music was a way of dealing with the problems of that time. Music may well have a greater relevance today than ever before—many problems have only gotten worse."

Conte's band—which includes Scandinavians, Italians, African Americans and African Caribbeans among its admirably cross-cultural lineup—features some great musicians. Particularly notable among them are singers Bridgette Amofah and British based Zara McFarlane, whose superb Protected content Arise (Brownswood) was previously reviewed here, trumpeter Theo Croker, alto saxophonist Logan Richardson, tenor saxophonist Magnus Lindgren and trombonist Gianluca Petrella.
