PHAROAH SANDERS - MEDITATION (Jazz File JF 1007)
1. The Creator Has a Master Plan (sic) 52:20
Apart from the track obviously not being 'The Creator Has a Master Plan', the cd is lacking an accurate personnel listing.
This is correct:
Pharoah Sanders & Starship Orchestra, Live at Montreux Jazz Festival - July 22, 1978
Pharoah Sanders: tenor sax
Norman Connors: drums, tymp, percussions
Duke Jones: trumpet
Buzzy Jones: tenor sax, flute
Bobby Lyle: piano
Billy McCoy: piano, electric piano
Jacques Burvick: keyboards
Greg Hill: guitar
Alex Blake: electric bass
Petro Bass: percussion, congas
Lawrence Killian: congas
I always thought this session tailed off somewhat after a strong start, however after coming across the second half of it on YouTube video, I found it quite exciting. The band certainly works itself into a frenzy, Connors particularly, who falls off a table after bashing hell out of the gongs.
Well worth watching: (possibly start at 3:50)
Does anyone know the tune?
