    • 1. Black Unity Pt. 1
    • 2. Black Unity Pt. 2

    Super-heavy percussive spiritual jazz. Highly recommended!

    Pharaoh Sanders added groove to foundation of spiritual and free jazz he had explored on his previous Impulse! albums. The result is a piercing and emotive 37-minute rhythm-driven title track exploration of African, Latin, aborigine and Native American sounds.
