Black Classical History of Spiritual Jazz 1955-2012

I was planning to put a new mix together, actually I thought I'd do one japanese jazz set and one deep spiritual jazz set, but I haven't had time to do them..

Fortunately Black Classical has done this epic spiritual jazz mix that lasts 12 hours!!
so no need to put any mix together in this month ;)
