I'm a long time follower of Saravah imprint and "slow-business" philosophy. Nevertheless have I discovered new songs with this comp. Saravah is still so unknown by large audience especially in France and this is an usefull project. Thanks!
Favorite track: Michel Roques - Monsieur Chimpanzé.

Promises is a wild adventure of developing sounds of minimalist ambient and third stream jazz fusing together. That may sound pretentious, but trust me this is worth your time! Everyone plays so beautifully here and I’m very happy that this was Sanders’ last piece of work because he put so much into this swansong of a composition! Rest in power Pharoah Sanders AliceDreadfuls
