he is to me too but it doesn't come immediate and natural on a great many of his albums and i'm not ashamed to say it.

and there's nothing wrong with being difficult! i'm sure some people would find lonnie difficult to get into a groove with. something about my body chemistry and upbringing make it easy and the occasional sanders recording hard.

of course this is me flipping through digital sanders albums and finding lots of stuff that's equally joyous.
karma, thembi, most of the impulse stuff is all perfectly accessible. maybe i'm thinking of a later set of albums?
black unity, i remember that one's a bit hard. i dunno, maybe this is the universe telling me to revisit dude's discog.

Black Unity is one of the more "intense" Sanders recs imo

totally
have you heard izipho zam? (i think that's right) it's classic era groovy
man do i love pharaoh sanders and i guess lonnie holley has a bit of that
although his band when i saw him was the most subdued bunch of people i've ever seen

dunno that one. am currently spinning 'finest' and am managing pretty darn well

maybe i haven't heard the right (wrong?) sanders records. but he has too much groove to be the kind of thing i think of as especially "difficult." maybe it's just taste/background.

two years pass...

i finally bought those two dust-to-digital albums after first seeing him perform in 2013. he is wonderful.

one year passes...

he's got some new material out, including this slick video

apparently he's played shows with animal collective and seems to be finding a bigger audience

Had this on loop for a while now and it gets more chilling with each listen. Very excited for the new album.

three months pass...

This album is great! Definitely one of the best things i've heard in the last year or more.

i have to revisit it! listened once or so but didn't spend much more time than that. i love the previous two records, and his art

yeah I really dig the new one, and I still haven't heard the older ones!
