- The Analog Vault // Essential Listening -

Though constantly underrated as an artist, Pharoah Sanders’ 1977 release on India Navigation, is without question one of the tenor saxophonist’s most transcendental works.

From his solo endeavours to his various collaborations with other jazz luminaries - Sanders’ belief in the concepts of karma and Tawhid (Islam's indivisible oneness concept of monotheism) became the true north of his elongated free jazz efforts.

Nowhere is that more apparent than the expansive 20-minute opener "Harvest Time", a spiritual jazz pilgrimage notably marked by the absence of drums - but beautifully layered by just the atmospheric guitar work of Tisziji Muñoz, the animated bass lead-lines by Steve Neil, the cascading harmonium work of Bedria (Sander’s wife at the time), and Sanders’ own spellbinding saxophone. Pharaoh also features a soulful 14-minute journey entitled “Love Will Find a Way”, and an enthralling closer called “Memories of Edith Johnson" that are just as artful and asymmetrical. - The Analog Vault

With Pharoah Sanders’ blessing, this limited-edition embossed 2LP box set represents the first official re-release and remastered version of Pharoah, Pharoah Sanders' seminal record from 1977, along with two previously unreleased live performances of his masterpiece “Harvest Time.” An accompanying 24-page booklet includes a treasure trove of rarely seen photographs, archival materials, interviews with many of the participants, and a conversation with Pharoah himself.” – Luaka Bop
