Pharoah sanders featuring leon thomas shukuru


Reception

In his review for AllMusic, Scott Yanow observed "Sanders does a close impression of late-'50s John Coltrane on "Body and Soul" and "Too Young to Go Steady" and shows a bit more heat on the other two numbers. But fans of his most passionate dates are advised to get a sampling of the earlier Impulse recordings instead.".
