PHAROAH SANDERS - SUMMUN BUKMUN UMYUN
Stratos has been at work again and re-upped my original rip of this Pharoah Sanders Impulse session from 1970.This is as a result of a request he spotted in an Orgy comment box.Please feel free if you wish to do anything similar yourself for others as it's VERY rare that I will re-post links-if you re-up them and leave me the link I'll make sure it gets re-posted...How's that?
Ramsone Knowling has been on the case as well and done a sterling job on a re-up of Sahib Shihab's Companionship-it's on the way.Thanks Ramsone !!!
One of the harder to find ones by Pharoah and a record that features only 2 long songs: the title cut and "Let Us Go Into the House of the Lord", each of which covers a side apiece. Recorded in 1970 the lineup includes Gary Bartz, Lonnie Liston Smith, Clifford Jarvis ,Nathaniel Bettis and Woody Shaw and side one is very much in the rhythmic modal spiritual mode of Pharoah's most compelling work on Impulse with a killing bass line courtesy of the great Cecil McBee . Side two then gets a bit more outside and free with more great solo work from McBee.
