Pharoah Sanders 

Live….. Feat Walter Booker, Idris Muhammed & John Hicks


Brand: Theresa Records
Artist: Pharoah Sanders : Walter Booker, John Hicks & Idris Muhammed
Title: Live…..

"This is a glorious, jubilant performance that reminds us that Sanders was at his most effective communicator when he had an audience, like a righteous preacher feeling the spirit with the faithful."

Kevin Le Gendre - Jazzwise March Issue

This album features Pharoah Sanders playing some no-nonsense tenor in a quartet with pianist John Hicks, bassist Walter Booker, and drummer Idris Muhammad. Sanders performs "It's Easy to Remember" (in a style very reminiscent of early-'60s John Coltrane), an original blues, and two of his compositions, including the passionate "You've Got to Have Freedom." The musicianship is at a high level and, although Sanders does not shriek as much as one might hope (the Trane-ish influence was particularly strong during this relatively mellow period), he is in fine form.

UK VIBE REVIEW Pharoah Sanders 'Live...' 2x180g Vinyl (Pure Pleasure) 3/5 - ukvibe - astral travelling since 1993

Beware! This is hot stuff! Wear asbestos clothing while listening.
Four world-class musicians at the very pinnacle of their art relating closely to one another in the vortex of a cyclone of jazz music. They're all burning, but listen particularly to John Hicks (R.I.P Mr. Hicks) on "DOKTOR PITT." Is he not the best thing to happen to the keyboard since McCoy Tyner? And when I state John Hicks was burning, if you've ever had the opportunity to view the video of this performance (maybe still on YouTube) recorded at the Great American Music Hall in 1981, you'll see
Mr. Hicks melting with perspiration. That's cookin' brother...

4* by Kevin Le Gendre

There are several notable concert recordings in the huge discography of the late Pharoah Sanders, above all the outstanding 1972 session Live At The East and the 1978 Montreux concert with Norman Connors. But this release, drawn from two West Coast gigs, one in Santa Cruz and the other in Los Angeles, makes it clear that in the following decade the saxophonist was still a force to be reckoned with anytime he took to the stage. Furthermore, his output at that point in his career really showed his command of many schools in black music, for if the nominal definition of Sanders was that of avant-garde titan than he was also a giant of the straightahead idiom.

Certainly, the distinctive earth-shattering shrieks and overtone explosions cohere brilliantly with the hard swinging bass and clattering ride cymbal beats of the anthem ‘You Gotta Have Freedom’, while the Afro-Brazillian thrust of ‘Pharomba’ is a reminder that Latin music was also a part of the goateed creator’s master plan. But if Sanders is on top form, blowing up a storm in his extended solos then his band, pianist John Hicks, bassist, Walter Booker and drummer Idris Muhammed, can make a credible claim to be one of the best quarters he ever led.

This is a glorious, jubilant performance that reminds us that Sanders was at his most effective communicator when he had an audience, like a righteous preacher feeling the spirit with the faithful. Kevin Le Gendre
