5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully chaotic and breath-taking., 11 April 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Karma (Audio CD)
First time I heard this I couldn't believe it. My all time favourite Jazz album. I've recommended this to a few friends who have all given me positive feedback. "The Creator has a masterplan" is available in shorter form on a couple of compilations, but sit back and listen to the full length version.

This isn't easy listening but is a serene experience every time i listen to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hippy dippy and trippy?, 20 Jun 2001

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Karma (Audio CD)
Sax man Sanders, see my review of Tahuid for more detail, has produced another great album here.
Elements of the avant garde, free composition style, and meditational rhythm and sparseness, mix and combine with and under the clear guidance musically and otherwise (contrast and compare with Sun Ra and his collectives) of Pharaoh to produce a beautiful melodic composition, The Creator has a master plan.
Underpinned by the great Reggie Workmans stylings on Bass, Creator jogs along for over thirty minutes, and it will move you with it, especially when Pharoah steps up with gutsy but beautiful contributions, spreading love and happiness to anyone within earshot.
Emotional, challenging and beautiful, this is one to be cherished

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 7 Feb 2008
This review is from: Karma (Audio CD)
This is a great album. Late 60's new jazz born out of
the late Coltrane.
In fact, Sanders played with Coltrane on a few albums+tours
and the influence in evident.
Touches of 'A Love Supreme' are all but discarded after
you just get used to them. Almost as if Pharoah was
payign homage to his peer and then boldly stating that
it was time for him to move on.
Leon Thomas' approach to singing is still inspiring to me as when i first heard him.
Check him out also if you can, you'll find Sanders on a
few of his PLUS an almost 7" version of
'The Creator Has A Master Plan'!
If you like Jazz, expression of the Soul as an art form, then this
is for you!!
