Major Keys return with another jazz funk gem that has never before been released on a 12 inch. We go back to 1977 for one of the era defining albums, Gary Bartz magnificent 'Music is My Sanctuary'. The title track from the double Grammy award winning saxophonist's LP is an evergreen floor filler, finally seeing it's long overdue 12 inch debut; a remastered, high volume DJ's delight. Featuring Syreeta Wright on vocals, Bill Summers & James Mtume on percussion, with arrangement by the one and only Larry Mizell, we have an assembled players list at the top of their game. The lyrics, joyful and heartfelt sum up exactly what music means to people, all underpinned by that glorious sax. One for the heads and the feet, it's a record that you will go back to time and again.On the flip is the lesser known 'Carnaval de L'Esprit', a masterclass in jazz funk, this truly is the sunshine sound. It will lighten the weariest of souls and signals Major Keys as a buy on sight label.Tracklisting:A1. Music Is My SanctuaryB1. Carnaval de L'Esprit
