Here's a real mystery. This alleged Pharoah album is a re-packeged (pre-packaged?) version of an equally mysterious album credited to Juan Amalbert's (later Emanuel Rahim of Kahlios fame) Latin Jazz Quintet with guest Pharoah Sanders The cover art (different on each version) looks to be about the same time as TAUHID, otherwise I'm clueless as to the vintage of this recording. Funky New York Afro-Cuban jazz recording with maddeningly incomplete and unspecific liner notes. The music is soulful boogaloo, wih occasional lapses into protosalsa and bigband souljazz. Hard to tell in a horn-heavy album, but Pharoah seems to have one solo vehicle, where he sounds really out of place in front of a way-way in horn section and funky rhythm section. There's a story here, I wish I knew it!
