A TAV Curator's Pick.

Tauhid is a 1967 jazz album by saxophonist Pharoah Sanders. It is his first album after death of John Coltrane, with whom Sanders played from 1965 to 1967. – Wiki

“At the helm of an all-star sextet that includes Henry Grimes on bass, Dave Burrell on piano, and Sonny Sharrockon guitar, Sanders leads the group through three pieces that transcend the traditional “head/solo/head” structure (where, following a quick introductory melody, each player gets a turn in the spotlight before the piece returns to the “head”). On Tauhid, the pieces are suites that play like seances, with movements billowing and unfolding of their own accord. The group’s unity is powerful, creating a spiritual atmosphere that casts a spell from the opening bars.” – Pitchfork

“…Sanders' distinctive overblowing produces screeching, scorching textures (a flammable, high-thread-count version of Coltrane's "sheets of sound"), then segues seamlessly into lilting melodic passages, evidence of a range so remarkable that Ornette Coleman called him "probably the best tenor player in the world." The album makes history by introducing the guitarist Sonny Sharrock, as important a six-string innovator as Jimi Hendrix, who translates Coltrane's raw, intense sax tones into guitar electroshock therapy, creating a buzzing trademark trill he called "an abrasive harmonic" that was the precursor to skronk, no wave, and grunge.” – Spin
