Saxophonist Billy Harper's uniquely soulful approach to jazz is on display in this full-length concert DVD, which features a special evening of Harper's original compositions, as well as the acoustic splendor and gothic brilliance of the Metropolitan Basilica Cathedral of St. Jacob in Szczecin, Poland. Harper showcases, with his symphonic flair, everything from the liberating artistic sensibility of jazz to the mystical reach of gospel music, and in doing so aptly displays his profound & spiritual musical approach through his passionate melodies and dynamic soloing. Billy Harper performs with his core ensemble (Harper, Francesca Tanksley on piano, Clarence Seay on bass, Newman Taylor Baker on drums, & trumpeter Piotr Wojitasik) along with the 60-piece Szczecin Technical University Choir, and three of the foremost musicians from Poland's burgeoning jazz community. This is the premiere showcase of Harper's dynamic saxophone sound and his ability to constantly reconceive the jazz blueprint. Songs include: Light Within · Speak to Me of Love, Speak to Me of Truth · Thy Will Be Done · Quest · The Awakening · Cry of Hunger. Bonus features include a biography, photo gallery, and bonus concert performance footage. 1 hour, 20 minutes.
