Um, Um, Um
COMPOSED BY LEON THOMAS AND PHAROAH SANDERS
"Leon Thomas is one of those originals who defy category or comparison. He has created his own idiom and made it an unusual and exciting experience."
especially on the 17 minute track "Pharoah's Tune (The Journey)", which is worth the price of the album alone! and players include Billy Harper, Billy Cobham, and Jerome Richardson. Beautiful spiritual jazz vocal material, with a sound that's beyond compare!
"Um Um Um" has a political rap not unlike Gil Scott-Heron. ("Um Um Um" was also recorded by Carlos Santana and Buddy Miles on their LIVE album as "Freeform Funkafide Filth"). "The Journey" cowritten by but not featuring Pharoah Sanders, is a side-long extended workout.
