For the first time on vinyl, this live concert featuring guest saxophonist Pharoah Sanders comes to record stores on numbered colour vinyl as part of Record Store Day. Garrett, like all of the other great musicians and artists that came before him, just keeps moving forward in still another of his many creative directions.
The latest of those ideas became Sketches of MD, a capricious excursion into open-ended melodies over grooves that each reflect the artistry of key sidemen from Miles Davis' many groups - from John Coltrane to Kenny himself. Consisting of five compositions (and clocking in at just under an hour), Sketches of MD is a compositionally relaxed yet performance intense record of some music Kenny performed at the Iridium Jazz Club in New York City with his band (Benito Gonzales on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Jamire Williams on drums) and special guest, tenor saxophone legend Pharoah Sanders.
