This double LP contains all ten of Pharoah Sanders' performances from the Journey to One sessions. As usual, Sanders shifts between spiritual peace and violent outbursts in his tenor solos. The backup group changes from track to track but often includes pianist John Hicks, bassist Ray Drummond, and drummer Idris Muhammad. Sanders really recalls his former boss John Coltrane on "After the Rain" (taken as a duet with pianist Joe Bonner) and a romantic "Easy to Remember

Pharoah Sanders plays both hot and cool jazz on this disc, traditional arrangements as well as experimental passages are woven together tighly for a snapshot of a man who has found his own voice and leadership in the jazz idiom. Beginning with "Greetings to Idris " the structure of the music is one that follows tradition yet opens up for the musicians to improvise within the arrangements. Greetings to Idris " is in reference to the featured drummer Idris Muhammad who also played with Coltrane during his late period . On Saturday 21 July 2007, I had a previllage of attending Pharoah Sanders performing live with a 42 piece band with strings in Johannesburg South Africa. From this CD, he performed "you've got to get Freedom.
