Pharoah Sanders possesses one of the most distinctive tenor saxophone sounds in jazz, which has earned him royal status amongst free jazz players, critics and collectors. Harmonically rich and heavy with overtones, his sound can be as raw and abrasive as it is possible for a saxophonist to produce. His 1987 album Africa is soulful but also searching for a strong groove at the same time. The album is recorded with John Hicks, Curtis Lundy and Idris Muhammad and was an explicit tribute to his late mentor John Coltrane, another giant of jazz.
Africa by Pharoah Sanders is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on orange & black marbled vinyl and includes the bonus tracks Heart To Heart and Duo. The sleeve contains liner notes by Kevin Whitehead and is printed on heavy cardboard with linen laminate finish.
