Released in May of 1969, Karma was the famed tenor saxophonist's third Impulse! Records album and is now seen as a milestone of the Spiritual Jazz movement. A natural progression in the sonic exploration that Sanders, along with John Coltrane and Alice Coltrane, had spearheaded throughout the previous five years, the album features two tracks, the 32-minute-long "The Creator Has A Master Plan," and "Colors."
Filling the entire A-Side of the LP, "Creator," co-composed by Sanders with vocalist Leon Thomas, is as close as Spiritual Jazz comes to having its own anthem. Meanwhile, the lone B-side track, "Colors," is no less transfixing.
This reissue honors the late jazz legend who passed away in September at the age of 81 and concludes the series for 2022.
