"The Harvest Time Project" w/ Irreversible Entanglements, Domenico Lancellotti, Tisziji Muñoz & Joshua Abrams

A Tribute to Pharoah Sanders

With "The Harvest Time Project" we bring a very special project to the stage: a tribute to Pharoah Sanders, honoring the legacy of Pharoah Sanders and his groundbreaking composition Harvest Time (1977).

This Germany only show of The Harvest Time Project on Monday, November 13 at Stadtgarten Cologne will feature Irreversible Entanglements, Domenico Lancellotti and special guest (and original Pharoah guitarist) Tisziji Muñoz, under the musical direction of Joshua Abrams (Natural Information Society, original member of The Roots, etc.) coming together to reinterpret Harvest Time.

On September 15, Luaka Bop will re-release the 1977 album "Pharoah" which, with Harvest Time, represents a radical departure from Sanders' earlier work. The re-release will be accompanied by never-before-heard live recordings, archival footage and extensive liner notes and photos. Misunderstood upon its release, the album has long been a holy grail and bootlegged for years. Now it is presented in its final, remastered version.

About Pharoah Sanders
Pharoah Sanders was an icon of spiritual jazz. He was chosen by John Coltrane to play on the latter's late masterpieces, and subsequently released a series of extensive recordings under his own name for the Impulse! label, cited as a crucial influence by everyone from Prince to Iggy Pop to Marvin Gaye. With Coltrane, Sanders recorded some of the most revered - and controversial - albums in jazz history, developing a wild, anarchic sound that would reverberate across genres for decades. Sanders' later solo work was similarly bold and influential, eventually earning him a GRAMMY in the late 1980s.
In 2016, the National Endowment for the Arts awarded him the prestigious title of Jazz Master, the genre's highest honor. In 2017, Pharoah Sanders performed at Le Guess Who? as part of the program curated by Shabazz Palaces. His last album, Promises, released in 2021 with Floating Points and the London Symphony Orchestra, was called a "masterpiece of his late career" and was named Album of the Year by several national newspapers around the world, as well as TIME Magazine and the New York Times. Pharoah Sanders passed away on September 24, 2022.
