Press Quotes


"Sanders sounds natural...maneuvering with agility and purpose, gamely sparring with Bley's Ivories and Motian's crisp cymbal patterns 

"These sets [with Sun Ra]...are the only known recordings from Sanders' brief tenure with Sun Ra, revealing a match made in heaven (or perhaps Saturn?)... "  

-- Scott Verrastro, Jazziz

                                                               

"Pharoah Sanders fans are advised to pick up this intriguing compilation."

-- Scott Yanow, Los Angeles Jazz Scene
