On this (harder to find) album you'll find sublime French recordings (recorded in 1990, released in 1991). Here, Sanders plays with an all-star line-up consisting of Stafford James (Sun Ra) on bass, William Henderson (Roy Ayers) on piano and Eccleston W. Wainwright on drums. On 'Welcome To Love', the master saxophonist plays straight-up jazz, and the result is a gorgeous collection of ballads where you can really feel Sanders' enormous self-reflection and homesickness. Sanders is famous for getting sounds out of his sax that no else can, but on these recordings he treats the songs with reverent lyricism on both tenor and soprano... each song is infused with a subtle emotional quality that simply does not let go. Hailed as Sanders' finest albums from his re-thinking period, in many ways, the album is a tribute to Coltrane's 'Ballads' album of 1961 but with Pharoah's print marked all over it. Here the listener explores the gentler side of Pharoah Sanders... a jazz giant who is communicating subtly and serenely. His incredible technique is displayed not in furious runs but in exquisite note choices, the mark of the outstanding communicator as demonstrated in the art of the ballad. Sanders communicates with a warmth and tonal center that is unusual among present players and compares favorably to the many soprano sax greats that have preceded him. 'Welcome To Love' is an ideal introduction to Sanders and a stepping-stone to the saxophonist's more inventive, spiritual pieces. If you're more familiar with Sanders' spiritual avant-garde works and not aware of this one, you'll be plenty surprised with the fabulous sound represented here. Firts ever vinyl release, up till now these recordings were only issued as a compact disc in 1991. Also comes with an extra bonus track (from the same sessions) that was only featured on the Japanese CD version. This black vinyl release is limited to 500 copies worldwide and comes with an obi strip.

Also available: WELCOME TO LOVE (2LP/CLEAR) (LP).
