On the album Africa from 1987 Sanders plays with an all-star line-up consisting of Idris Muhammad, John Hicks and Curtis Lundy.

Artist: Pharoah Sanders

Genre: Jazz

Label: Tidal Waves Music

Release date:

Muhammad brings his trademark tight sense of timekeeping, but with a looseness that we love ‰ÛÒ and Lundy‰۪s warm soulful bass does more than enough to give the set a sound bottom- all this while Hick‰۪s free lyrical piano works nicely with Sander‰۪s spiritual horn.

The brilliant ‰Û÷Africa sessions‰۪ features the quartet at their best...soulful but also searching for a strong groove at the same time. The music here is less ornamented than on most of Sanders‰۪ studio recordings, where sextets, septets or larger lineups have been the norm, but this brilliant effort here remains every bit as compelling. Pharoah and his crew play with the utmost sensitivity and give a demonstration that shows us the full extent of their skills.
