      The album features a stellar lineup of musicians who bring immense talent and creativity to the recording. Joining Lawrence are maestros Woody Shaw on trumpet, Julian Priester on trombone, bassist Clint Houston, pianist Joe Bonner, drummer Billy Hart, James Mtume with the percussion and Jean Carn on vocals. Each musician’s distinct style and improvisational prowess contribute to the album’s overall brilliance. Opening track “Bridge Into The New Age” gets you prepared for the spiritual odyssey Lawrence guides you towards, one with minimal yet powerfully evocative lyrics that showcase vocalist Carn’s range and creativity. With its rich compositions, masterful performances, and exploratory spirit, Bridge Into The New Age remains a significant contribution to the spiritual jazz genre.
