This Impulse reissue is part of a remastered "twofer" series, combining two original albums by various jazz artists. The Pharoah Sanders reissue reviewed here comprises two 1973 releases, "Village of the Pharoahs" and "Wisdom Through Music". I've literally waited decades for "Village" to appear on CD. Until now, it has been available only as very expensive Japanese or European imports.

Pharoah Sanders - Village Of The Pharoahs + Wisdom Through Music (2011)

Sanders assembled a stellar group of musicians for these two albums, including Joe Bonner (piano) Calvin Hill, Cecil McBee and Stanley Clarke (bass), Art Webb, James Branch (flutes) Norman Conners, Jimmy Hopps (drums)and several percussionists, including Mtume and Miles Davis sideman Badal Roy. The style of music is mostly a fusion of jazz, polyrythmic African music, and eastern raga, with much use of exotic flutes, bells, shakers, vocal chants etc.
Two tracks that really stand out for me are the extended title track of "Village", which is a very intense piece of trance music, featuring droning tamboura and vocal chanting, and an African folk melody from "Wisdom" called "The Golden Lamp". This latter track is both sad and joyful; a very beautiful tune that will not leave your head. For those seeking a pop music cross-reference, it would be fair to say that fans of 70s era Santana might find this to their liking.
Finally, I must comment on the quality of the remastering, which is absolutely stunning. Every cymbal tap, bell, and woodblock can be heard in crystal clarity. No question that this is the definative issue of these two fine albums by this great artist.
