4.0 out of 5 stars a new gun in town, September 28, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Featuring Pharoah Sanders & Black Harold (Audio CD)
Happy to report that the disc ain't near as scarifying as piero seems to think. Sanders takes to the Arkestra like a fish to bicycle, and considering the prior Ra-Gilmore-Trane connection probably ingested and transported a hefty dose of cosmic vibe that helped empower those Impulse albums from Ascension on.

The music here is energetic, even celebratory with no horn left unassailed. It's as if Ra's ny ensemble was reaching an uncharted post-bop climax just before it ran off the rails into the classic sessions that followed.

I'm thrilled that this disc has found it's way to release. It seems that just a few years ago there were any number of legendary records of Ra that were catalogued and discussed, but never got distributed beyond the original saturn pressing that were hawked at shows decades passed. This stuff is so fresh and alive and waiting for the next generation of star gazers to beam up.
