- TAV // Essential Listening -

Consisting of a single 46-minute composition, divided into nine movements, the unlikely team- up between British electronic music producer Floating Points and American jazz saxophonist Pharoah Sanders resulted in the production of an extraordinary album that bridges generational, genre and musical barriers. Recorded with august assistance from the London Symphony Orchestra, Promises is a sweeping, otherworldly and ethereal experience that feels like a cosmic communion. Anchored by Floating Points’ synthetic arrangements and a compact seven-note harpsichord arpeggio motif, Promises is poignantly populated by the spirituality of Sanders’ tenor sax and the cinematic swells of violins, violas, cellos, and double basses. What follows is a truly joyous creative conversation that modulates and mutates from contemplative and mournful into something exultant and metaphysical.
