Founded in 1978 and still going in 2018, Astral Project has been “New Orleans’ best-kept secret” – a world-class modern-jazz group composed of the city’s finest players.  Beneath its funky Big Easy style the group has a spiritual agenda:  put the audience on the astral plane.

In A Higher Fusion, drawing on interviews with group members and some 40 other New Orleans musicians, along with  an inconceivable quantity of other research, David Lasocki paints a lively picture of Astral Project and its history.  He looks at the group’s spiritual agenda and considers why it has never become world-famous.  He alson examines Astral Project’s recordings, studio and live, in illuminating detail.  A comprehensive discography and an equally comprehensive bibliography are thrown in for good measure.
