Pharoah Sanders - Astral Traveling

Legendary tenor saxophonist Pharoah Sanders makes his way back to the bay area with a 3-night residency starting tomorrow night at Yoshi's San Francisco. Here is the saxophonist's amazing rendition of "Astral Traveling" off his brilliant 1971 album Thembi. This cosmic gem was written by Lonnie Liston Smith who plays electric piano on the album. Another great rendition of the composition was recorded by Smith and his Cosmic Echoes group a couple years later and released as the title track to the group's 1973 album off of the Flying Dutchman label. Overall, a true spiritual cosmic masterpeice!
