For the first time since its 1990 release, the 25th album from avant-gardist saxophonist Pharoah Sanders reissued on limited vinyl by Tidal Waves Music.
The 6 tracks LP may have originally disappointed some of Sanders’ fans, but with time he has gained in notoriety with his reinvented style as a more traditional improviser capable of thoughtful and pensive deliberations. Recorded in France in 1989, Sanders plays here with an all-star line-up consisting of Stafford James on bass, William Henderson on piano and Eddie Moore on drums.
On this album, the legendary saxophonist clearly reinvented himself as a more traditional improviser, capable of thoughtful and pensive deliberations. Catchy mystical New Age vocals, astrological references… Pharoah may remain an acquired taste, but few jazzmen can equal his unique formula of mastering the ‘groove’.
This edition comes packaged as a deluxe 180 gram LP and is limited to 500 copies worldwide (with obi strip). Moon Child follows Tidal Wave’s reissue of Pharoah Sanders’ Africa LP earlier this year.
Moon Child, September 27 via Tidal Waves Music. You can pre-order it here now.
