Format: Audio CD
This CD has many similarities with the John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman CD and titled it Music of Incredible Beauty and Sensitivity. Each CD shares a moving version of the jazz ballad, My One and Only Love. There are more parallels. Coltrane himself recorded several of these tunes. Coltrane and Sanders collaborated in furious free-jazz explorations at the end of Trane's life. Sanders became famous within the jazz community for those recordings. However, he has explored music and the saxophone from then until now. This CD, recorded in 1990, issued in 1996, explores the gentler side of Pharoah Sanders, a jazz giant, communicating subtly and serenely.
Here, the musicians are a quartet. Sanders is on tenor and soprano sax, William Henderson on piano, Stafford James on bass and Eccleston W. Wainright, Jr. on drums. The included songs are standards and ballads, songs of love, tempos of reflection and deliberation, compositions clearly within the mainstream jazz tradition.
Sanders' performances are stunning. On tenor, his tone is lyrical and sure in his upper register, big, yet mellow in his lower one. His incredible technique is displayed not in furious runs but in exquisite note choices, the mark of the outstanding communicator as demonstrated in the art of the ballad. Sanders plays six of the eight cuts on tenor. On soprano, IMHO the most difficult of the saxophones to play with excellent tone and intonation, Sanders communicates with a warmth and tonal center that is unusual among present players and compares favorably to many soprano sax greats. Mr. Sanders lays claim to these tunes as his own - through subtle lines constructed inside the changes but unique in their beauty, romance and evocativeness.

While cynics will cry that Pharoah is cashing in on his Coltrane connection, just listen and you will hear what a fantastically sensitive player Sanders is. Those who have listened to Sanders throughout the years already know this.
I like this CD for the same reasons Ballads is one of my favorite Trane CDs - Its is just so nice to listen to.

This CD could have been titled "the gentle side of Pharoah Sanders". Here is a beautiful collection of ballads, most of which were favorites of John Coltrane. If you like Pharoah's outside playing this might not be the best choice; there's none of that here. I like all of it, in and out, and he gets sounds out of his tenor that no else can, but on this date he treats the songs with reverent lyricism on both tenor and soprano. Great trio support also.

Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
There was a wonderful LP album of sax ballads about love that I enjoyed in the late seventies by Pharoah Sanders. I had difficulty finding it on CD later. Other Pharaoh Sanders albums I listened to had an edge, rather than the easy listening sound I remembered. This must be it; I have listened to the tracks and am downloading the whole album. I highly reccommend it. I probably like it even better than another favorite, Coleman Hawkins.
