Overview

This Evidence CD is a reissue of a Theresa LP, adding two songs ("Naima" and "Rise 'n' Shine") to the original program. Pharoah Sanders is heard at his best on a 22-minute version of "Olé," where the tenor really gets a chance to stretch out. His "vocal" on "Goin' to Africa" is spirited, but otherwise most of his solos are very much in the tradition of John Coltrane. There are some fiery moments but few surprises on this date chiefly recommended to Sanders fans.
