Gary Bartz – Music Is My Sanctuary

Second-rate crossover jazz from the '70s

Trending Now

Multi-instrumental saxophonist Bartz came to wide attention in the early ’70s when Miles Davis recruited him. With roots in hard bop, Bartz so took to Davis’ Afro-funk style that he spent the late ’70s making crossover LPs in which the jazz content is almost an optional extra. Later, he returned to hard bop and cut a sequence of well-received albums in the ’80s and ’90s. Music Is My Sanctuary dates from 1977 and is a fair representation of Bartz’s less than gripping pop output.
