Thembi is the seventh album by free-jazz saxophonist Pharoah Sanders, released in 1971. The album is named after Sanders's son. Sanders moved away from the long, intense compositions of his solo albums and produced an album of shorter tracks. He and other musicians played a large variety of instruments. Sanders played tenor, alto, and soprano saxophone, bailophone (African thumb piano), small percussion instruments, and a cow horn.

It is strange that two of the most striking albums made by saxophonist Pharoah Sanders during the first flush of late 1960s/early 1970s astral jazz have been so often overlooked in reissue series. The album was recorded during two sessions-in Los Angeles in November 1970 (tracks 1-3), and in New York City in January 1971 (tracks 4-6)-with some changes in personnel.

Thembi is a 1971 album by free-jazz saxophonist Pharoah Sanders. In this album, named after Sanders's son, the saxophonist moved away from the intense, lengthy, percussion-heavy jams he'd been pursuing in his solo work up to that point, and produced a record made up of shorter tracks, often with a more light and breezy feel.

Aria
Not the greatest pressing. I've been looking for a reasonably priced clean original for a while to no avail. Elected to take a stab at this one when I saw it in Amoeba today. Some non fill issues and the lower frequencies seem a little muddy, even distorted, on side 1. Side 2 fairs better but it's a bit disappointing on the whole.

My copy is fine. No complaints. Astral Travelling sounds mighty fine...

Sharpbrew
Hello guys, how is the sound on this one ?

Ucantia
Thanks you for your answers man, i think i will purchase a copy

Ber
Sounds great to my ears, although I have never listened to an original pressing. Nice cover too, waaaay better looking than the recent Journey In Satchinadanda repress (which imo looks like a Xerox)

I am picking this up this week, I will let you know.

These guys did something so special in years to come records like these will be a testament of what makes Human beings the most potent force in our universe, this album opened my ears and expressed that humans have something called a soul, very few people have ever achieved going to a higher plain through music, in my view what we have here is Shamans music that state of nirvāṇa.Through their instruments they have transcended the physical to move towards the pure spirit.

"On Thembi, that was the first time that I ever touched a Fender Rhodes electric piano. We got to the studio in California — Cecil McBee had to unpack his bass, the drummer had to set up his drums, Pharoah had to unpack all of his horns. Everybody had something to do, but the piano was just sitting there waiting. I saw this instrument sitting in the corner and I asked the engineer, 'What is that?' He said, 'That’s a Fender Rhodes electric piano.' I didn’t have anything to do, so I started messing with it, checking some of the buttons to see what I could do with different sounds. All of a sudden I started writing a song and everybody ran over and said, 'What is that?' And I said, 'I don’t know, I’m just messing around.' Pharoah said, 'Man, we gotta record that. Whatcha gonna call it?' I’d been studying astral projections and it sounded like we were floating through space so I said let’s call it 'Astral Traveling.' That’s how I got introduced to the electric piano" — Lonnie Liston Smith

An unusually eclectic Pharoah record. "Astral Travelling" is a proto-Smooth Jazz journey to the New Age written by Smith, with Pharoah on soprano and Smith electric. "Red, Black & Green" is an intense free exploration. "Thembi" is a sunny love song, with Pharoah on soprano again.. "Love" is a bass solo by McBee that serves as an intro to "Morning Prayer", a ballad which in turn segues directly into "Ballophone Dance", a very afrocentric number.
