Cat No: LB97CD

Sam Shepherd (Floating Points): Pharoah…

Pharoah Sanders: Huh…?

Sam: Were you asleep? I’m sorry…

Pharoah: No no… I was listening… and dreaming… and listening to music in my head…

Sam: Oh wow… sorry.

Pharoah: Many times, people think I might be asleep… but in fact, I am just listening to music in my head. I’m always listening… to the sounds around me… and playing, in my mind… and sometimes I dream.

Sam: What were you dreaming about?

Pharoah: I’m on a ship. In the ocean. Bears coming around smoking cigars. The bears are singing, We have the music. We have what you’re looking for. I say, Really? And I was making fish dinners. Shark..Lobster. Got all kinds of fish. And you know, a good pie. Pumpkin pie. You like pumpkin pie?

Pharoah: How you like that take, Sam?

Sam: It’s cool. I think the bit in the middle, where it stops again…I think you can hear…We were both kind of confused. I like it as well because it sounds like two musicians that are trying to guide each other.

Pharoah: I think that’s it right there. It came out different. It came out good though.

Sam: You happy?

Pharoah: Yeah, I’m cool with it.

Sam: Okay. Yeah, I think you’re playing is beautiful.
