As a traveler-without-age, Damo Suzuki has been touring all over space-time. Presenting the light of “instant composing” to new generations, he refers to his makeshift collaborators as sound-carriers. Exactly fifty years after the release of the profoundly iconic Ege Bamyası, we can hear his voice on yet another fantastic album, as in “derived from fantasy.” Manifested from the meeting with Spiritczualic Enhancement Center -- an eight-piece group of self-proclaimed disciples from the CAN University have gathered at Arkaoda (Turkish for “backroom”).
Named after the place in Berlin where it was recorded, this release freewheels down the Autobahn of Consciousness as it swerves along that ancestral road. A witness of this session was quoted calling it “unfiltered, freeform, de-programming music.” The LP’s three volatile tracks called U, Ra, Beya (Japanese for “backroom”) are unity-enhancing non-boolean excerpts from this gathering at the beginning of 2020. Let your children hear this!

Promises is a wild adventure of developing sounds of minimalist ambient and third stream jazz fusing together. That may sound pretentious, but trust me this is worth your time! Everyone plays so beautifully here and I’m very happy that this was Sanders’ last piece of work because he put so much into this swansong of a composition! Rest in power Pharoah Sanders AliceDreadfuls
