“Free Jazz is Gospel” for Zoh Amba, writes the New York Times. The 23-year-old Tennessee tenor, who played her instrument as a child in the Appalachian woods to save her life and went to New York in 2021 to learn from her idol David Murray, counters: "It's not spontaneous. It's not free jazz. It comes from the heart.” The fact that Zoh Amba sees music as a fundamentally divine blessing is already clear from the band name of her trio with the 25-year-old pianist Micah Thomas and free-jazz-punk Chris Corsano on drums (almost twice her age): Bhakti means "piety as a way of salvation" in Sanskrit.
