Pharoah Sanders’ 1991 album Welcome To Love gets first vinyl release



A sonic tribute to John Coltrane.

Saxophonist Pharoah Sanders’ 1991 album Welcome To Love is making its vinyl debut, this March via Tidal Waves Music.

Listen next: A cosmic journey with legendary sax originator Pharoah Sanders

A pioneer of astral jazz, Sanders recorded Welcome To Love in 1990, self-releasing the LP the following year.

The album was created as a tribute to John Coltrane’s 1961 album Ballads, and features Sanders on saxophone alongside Stafford James on bass, Roy Ayers-collaborator William Henderson on piano, and Eccleston W. Wainwright on drums.

Welcome to Love follows Transversales Disques’ release of Sanders’ 1975 Paris concert, Live In Paris.
