The jazz community knew famous jazz 


saxophonist Pharoah Sanders for the 


spirituality of his compositions. In the 


1960s, Sanders began his career by 


performing with John Coltrane. The 


two-part "The Creator Has a Master Plan" 


from the "Karma" album, which was 


published in 1969, is one of the 


saxophonist's most well-known 


compositions. The combined track 


lasts for around 33 minutes.


After more than a decade of playing but not 


releasing records, Sanders collaborated with


 producer Floating Points and the London 


Symphony Orchestra to release the acclaimed 


"Promises" in 2021. Pharoah Sanders' gift 


of music was "both breathtakingly simple 


and arrestingly exquisite.
