4 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

Pharaoh Sanders's Jewels Of Thought album came amidst a run of work that was defined by its comparatively minimal arrangements. His sparse canvases allow the tender sax meditations to take on even more potency and importance whether he's playing soft and seductive or more brazen and crazed.

As he unleashes all his innermost emotions, Pharaoh takes listeners on a very real and wild ride that 25 years after first release still makes for compelling listening. 'Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah' is a magnificent mix of spoken word, rich percussion and tumbling drums that makes for a standout amongst his whole discography.
