Kozmigroov or spiritual jazz is a fairly recent denomination for a style of jazz (related to free jazz and space jazz) exemplified by American recording label Strata East. According to Ian Scott Horst, the genre's history starts with John Coltrane's A Love Supreme, which was recorded in late 1964 and invoked the ecstatic spirit of non-Western religious tradition. Gato Barbieri, Alice Coltrane, John Coltrane, John McLaughlin, Pharoah Sanders, Lonnie Liston Smith, Leon Thomas and McCoy Tyner have been called kozmigroov at some point.

In the words of Ian Scott Horst:

"Kozmigroov is a transgressive improvisational music which combines elements of psychedelia, spirituality, rock, soul, funk, and African, Latin, Brazillian, Indian and Asian influences. At its most accomplished, Kozmigroov is both expansive and highly rhythmic, and simultaneously finds connections with the mind, soul and body." [Aug 2006]
"The social revolution of the 1960s called into question the whole function of music in a social and cultural framework. The rebellious youth culture sought in music an outlet for expression freed from the rules and boundaries set by previous generations. A newly self-aware African-American community sought in music a reconnection to African roots and heritage, as well as the forging of new cultural identities. And finally, dissatisfied by religious institutions that seemed ossified and abstract, millions undertook a spiritual quest, exploring the ideas of religions and philosophies from around the globe, especially those that offered the intensity of religious ecstasy combined with the tranquility of meditation. from"
