This multicultural collection matches young Canadian jazz musicians with African and Caribbean expats. The "Right On!" politics of 2007's Freedom No Go Die is bypassed for a celebration of life and spiritual concerns. So, while there is still an Afrobeat flavor to some of the material, this plays like a more mellow, melodic version of A Love Supreme (though the set ends by covering Pharaoh Sanders, not Coltrane). "Lotus Flower," "Serenity" and "Awakening" give off a luxurious glow, while "Agbara" proves that the dance floor can also lead to enlightenment.
