    Where to start with Pharoah Sanders? (for halfadozen)

    Alice Coltrane - Journey in Satchidananda (1970)
    Alice Coltrane - Ptah the El Daoud (1970)
    Don Cherry - Where Is Brooklyn? (1966)
    John Coltrane - Ascension (1965)
    John Coltrane - Meditations (1965)
    Maleem Mahmoud Ghania with Pharoah Sanders - The Trance of Seven Colors (1994)
    Pharoah Sanders - Izipho Zam (1973)
    Pharoah Sanders - Karma (1969)
    Pharoah Sanders - Live at the East (1971)
    Pharoah Sanders - Thembi (1971)
    Pharoah Sanders - Black Unity (1971)
    Pharoah Sanders - Live (1981)
    Pharoah Sanders - Tauhid (1966)
    Sonny Sharrock - Ask the Ages (1991)
    Sun Ra - Featuring Pharoah Sanders and Black Harold

    Count=15

    On Ptah The El Daoud you get to hear Sanders contrasted with the always marvelous Joe Henderson.

    Ascension presents Sanders in a large ensemble, and allows for the comparison between him and several other "out" saxophonists of the time; two other tenors, Coltrane and Archie Shepp, and two altos, Marion Brown and John Tchicai.

  • nice

    Mahavishnu Orchestra!

  • Count: 0, Top 25 Albums of the 80s

    Too bad I can't add these to our list.

    The Art Ensemble of Chicago - Urban Bushmen (1980)
    Evan Parker & George Lewis - From Saxophone & Trombone (1980)

    And I haven't heard more than five albums from this decade. :(


    *calls for Beelzbubba*

  • Why can't you add those to the list?

  • We're not gonna have a "1980 isn't part of the 80's" debate, are we?

  • Oh, jeez, I hope it's not that. We're definitely not getting into that whole thing.

  • I'm listening to Coleman Hawkin's warm saxophone :) How about you guys?

  • I've mainly been listening to classical while writing some papers, but in between I revisited this archival live Frank Zappa material that was released a few years back. Zappa toured very briefly with a big band after releasing Waka/Jawaka and The Grand Wazoo in the early 70's, and audio of this group was finally released in 2007. It's great stuff, especially if you enjoyed those two studio albums. Not as good as the studio albums, but still quite satisfying.


  • Can I suggest The Sonny Clark Memorial Quartet's album, Voodoo (1986), to be added to the 80s list?


    I think someone here recommended it, actually (here, thank you google). It's interesting to hear Zorn do this kind of thing, when I personally know him from Naked City.

    (\__/)
    (='.'=) This is Bunny. Copy and paste Bunny into your
    (")_(") signature to help him gain world domination.

    ze bunny! :O

  • Mirakle - Derek Bailey

    Really fun stuff. Bailey plays with Jamaaladeen Tacuma (funk bassist who played in Ornette Coleman's Prime Time) and Calvin Weston (of Lounge Lizards etc.). Makes for a wild ride. They really start to gel as the album rolls along. Definitely recommended.
