Pharoah Sanders, Karma

Perhaps his best-known work (outside of his sideman duties with ‘Trane)… Karma is blah blah blah

As I was saying, Karma is two songs, “The Creator Has a Master Plan,” and “Colors….”

Sanders, with his big-bore mouthpiece and stomach-based sound… the high-gain galaxy piercing sax version of death metal guitar…. then with piano, then bells (because the best jazz is still, 40 years later, more open-minded than metal or any other genre)– then at 1:45 Leon Thomas and his baritone singing….

“Colors” starts with Sanders’ unmistakable tenor, replete with aggressive trills….

It’s fun stuff.

Get it, cheap! (2 freakin’ dollars….)
