PHAROAH SANDERS - VILLAGE OF THE PHAROAHS





















An overlooked gem from Pharoah Sanders' years on Impulse one that has him breaking the pattern a bit, but in a really great way!Side 1 is the massive Village of the Pharoahs which is focused in a way that packs an incredible punch.The session then mixes up some shorter songs on side 2 that are all still quite spiritual even at more contemplative moments and includes the beautiful "Memories of Lee Morgan". Players include Sanders regulars like Norman Connors on drums and Cecil McBee on bass but also some key newcomers, like Art Webb on flute, Joe Bonner on piano, and Jimmy Hopps on drums making one of his excellent Impulse appearances for the record. But perhaps even more striking are the vocals on the set done by Sedatrius Brown, who sings partially in a Leon Thomas spiritual mode but also hits notes that are a bit earthier, and which are picked up in added vocalizations by members of the group.
Another lp that deserves a re issue on cd.

I HAVE UPLOADED THIS LP AGAIN SO GIVE THIS LINK A TRY AND LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES

Hi, first of all let me tell you how great your blog is, with this terrific idea of making mostly out of print lp’s available!
I also wanted to ask if you could upload this file

I don’t want to put any pressure, but I will be online till the 24th, and then again from the 4th of January onwards.

Thanks a lot
Best
