Sam Shepherd (Floating Points): Pharoah...
Pharoah Sanders: Huh...?
Were you asleep? I'm sorry...
No no... I was listening... and dreaming... and listening to music in my head...
Oh wow... sorry.
Many times, people think I might be asleep... but in fact, I am just listening to music in my head. I'm always listening... to the sounds around me... and playing, in my mind... and sometimes I dream.
What were you dreaming about?
I'm on a ship. In the ocean. Bears coming around smoking cigars. The bears are singing, ‘We have the music. We have what you're looking for.’
How you like that take, Sam?
It's cool. I think the bit in the middle, where it stops again...I think you can hear...We were both kind of confused. I like it as well because it sounds like two musicians that are trying to guide each other.
I think that's it right there. It came out different. It came out good though.
Yeah, I'm cool with it.
Okay. Yeah, I think your playing is beautiful.
