"Spiritual power: the ability to save, or change someone's life through music, and/or the ability to overcome any obstacle with music as the guiding transformational force."

"With Spiritual Power Lavelle establishes himself as a major player and he is backed on this fine achievement by two stalwart veterans. My long time friend bassist Hilliard Greene whom I first heard play in the late 80's with the great Charles Gayle who has several incredible Silkheart releases and to whom the title track (along with William Parker another Silkheart artist) is dedicated. The other player in this marvelous trio is drummer Michael Thompson, who I heard for the first time a couple of years ago with my birthday brother, trumpeter Roy Campbell. Campell's amazing group The Pyramid trio has a milestone recording on Silkheart and the 3rd track on this disc, Sí se Puede (Yes We Can) is dedicated to them. You see what I mean - Lavelle learns from and never forgets his mentors. As with track 2 Stars Like Fleas which is dedicated to Ornette Coleman someone Lavelle has been spending a lot of time with lately and of whom he states "is my new friend who has changed my life and set me free."

Lavelle's diversity shines through-out this CD. Like the Moon he goes through all the phases. 1/4 tones. 1/2 tones. Full out full/filling all the muse's demands, whims and wishes. This is forceful yet unforced music. Spiritual Power for Lavelle is the ability to change and/or save one's life through Music and as he states in End Times, which is dedicated to the world at large, we are faced with the near impossible challenge of overcoming ourselves. Yet he also tells us with I Will Have Love in my Life (which he dedicates to himself) that even though he's been alone most of his life it won't always be that way. Other tracks are Hey Liduva a love song for his ex-girl who started life off tragically and Seth Speaks after the book of the same name. All simple messages presented in a complex way through the miracle that is music."-Steve Dalachinsky, from the liner notes
