Floating Points, Pharoah Sanders & The London Symphony Orchestra - Promises
New collaboration from the legendary Pharoah Sanders and electronic musician Floating Points along with the London Symphony! Mesmerizing solos and meticulously arranged peices combine and stretch WAY OUT across nine movements. A must listen for jazz-heads, improv-zoners and ambient-enjoyers.
Sam (Floating Points): Pharoah...
Sam: Were you asleep? I'm sorry...
Pharoah: No no... I was listening... and dreaming... and listening to music in my head...
Sam: Oh wow... sorry.
Pharoah: Many times, people think I might be asleep... but in fact, I am just listening to
music in my head. I'm always listening... to the sounds around me... and playing, in my
mind... and sometimes I dream.
Sam: What were you dreaming about?
Pharoah: I'm on a ship. In the ocean. Bears coming around smoking cigars. The bears are
singing, ‘We have the music. We have what you're looking for.

Pharoah: How you like that take, Sam?
Sam: It's cool. I think the bit in the middle, where it stops again...I think you can hear...We
were both kind of confused. I like it as well because it sounds like two musicians that are
trying to guide each other.
Pharoah: I think that's it right there. It came out different. It came out good though.
Sam: You happy?
Pharoah: Yeah, I'm cool with it.
Sam: Okay. Yeah, I think your playing is beautiful.
