Pharoah Sanders - Live At The East

Farrell Sanders is a legend that forged his art in the crucibles of Sun Ra and John Coltrane before taking his own rightful place in the pantheon. A friend of mine just told me that he passed five days ago and I want to bow my head in appreciation.

It is only relatively recently that his classic early releases have even been reissued, regardless of the format. This is a 24-bit digital remastering of the album originally released on Impulse! in 1972. This was released in Japan on Universal Music in 2003 as part of their (apparently brief) 'The...Music Hardcore Jazz' series.

Couldn’t agree more. Not the sort of thing I’d expect to see on BlkBlss, tho’ I s’poze the drones on side two fit. I was lucky enough to find this as a cut out back in the day. Hate to think what a new vinyl copy goes for these days. Thx for the remembrance.
