Live in Larissa

A 7 track soul jazz album (1h 30m 27s) — released April 28th 2014 on Sound Soul And Spirit

This is Nat's sixth release as a leader and is his first Live album. Recorded over two nights in Larissa, Greece, in 2013 this double-vinyl LP captures Nat's 5 piece band in full flight on 7 exetended songs. Playing in front of an expectant and enthusiastic audience the band reach the heights of Spiritual Jazz in sublime fashion, playing with a rare passion that is captured beautifully on the recording.
