Black Renaissance was the musical project of Harry Whitaker. It featured Woody Shaw, Azar Lawrence, Buster Williams, Billy Hart and Mtume amongst others. "Having already achieved varying degrees of commercial and critical success with Roy Ayers' Ubiquity project and Roberta Flack, Harry Whitaker went into the studio to record Black Renaissance: Body, Mind & Spirit, a tone poem reflecting on the state of African American music in the 1970s. Debunking the myth of the record's rarity aside (scarcely available for decades until its 2002 reissue by Ubiquity), this album is a map of the African American musical canvas -- a symphony of melding influences as far reaching as Sun Ra's call and responses to the future, John Coltrane's tonal meditations to the holy spirit, and the electronic wizardry of Herbie Hancock's " Raindance" all nestled together in unison.

The strength of this album lies in all these variables and Whitaker's own unique composition sensibilities bringing it all together in a way that's accessible to people unfamiliar with any of the aforementioned artists. Black Renaissance: Body, Mind & Spirit is a haunting echo of progression in a time where innovation was the norm, not the exception" ~ Rob Theakston, All Music Guide Read more on Last.fm.
