Song of the Day: Nat Birchall – Acknowledgement (A Love Supreme Pt 1)

The British saxophonist and bandleader Nat Birchall released a new single Acknowledgement (A Love Supreme Pt 1), from his forthcoming solo album Afro Trane.

Third all-solo outing from Nat Birchall. This time Nat pays homage to the patron saint of the tenor saxophone, John Coltrane. With a balanced programme of original songs and Coltrane compositions, the album focusses on the more Afrocentric aspects of the music. Nat plays all the instruments on the album - tenor & soprano saxophones, bass clarinet, zurna, piano, Korg Minilogue, harmonium, bass, drums, hand drums, mbira, percussion.

Nat Birchall has quietly garnered a reputation as one of the country's foremost creatives in the jazz medium, releasing inspirational music that operates in similar regions to the spiritual works of luminaries such as John Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders. Once a member of the Gondwana Records fold the majority of his material is self-released through his own label Sound Soul And Spirit and via the legendary Jazzman record label.
