Promises is a collaboration between British electronic music producer Sam “Floating Points” Shepherd and American jazz legend Pharoah Sanders (with an assist from the London Symphony Orchestra), and it sits in that nebulous dimension.

The album, a sweeping, solitary composition of nine movements, combines Shepherd’s arrangements and artistic vision with the spiritual yearnings of Sanders’s tenor saxophone; the result is an otherworldly, dreamlike experience.

The strings section of the London Symphony Orchestra, fully making their arrival in Movement 6, heighten both the album’s drama and splendor. The result is a rewarding study in contrasts: an oddly cohesive conversation between the worlds of spiritual jazz, electronic music, and classical music.
