Black Unity's shout is even fuller. The whole album is a thirty five minute title track. Sanders works around Stanley Clarke's bass ostinato, wrapping it in bells, two tenor saxes, a trumpet, piano, and a very interesting instrument called a balaphone. Texture is a big part of Black Unity, along with raw joy-another big contrast to the turbulent sounds of late Coltrane. None of which matters until you hear the visceral fruits of this album, which you're late on the boat for already.
