7. Pharoah Sanders – Elevation
A tad overlooked Pharoah Sanders album, which might even be my favorite. Joe Bonner is in my opinion one of the best pianist in the quote unquote spiritual jazz spectrum and he really lets himself loose on this album. A friend of a friend said, that he was never into free jazz, but he always liked Pharoah Sanders, as his songs would always reward you after surviving through the long, noisy improvisational bits. I therefore apologize for fading the song before the reward, but it became a bit too intense for my slightly hungover mindset.
