Mt. Morris Park (Marcus Garvey Park), NYC, July 7th 1972
(Note: These video clips do not contain audio.)
- Pharoah Sanders – sax
- Joe Bonner – piano
- Stanley Clarke – bass
- Lawrence Killian – percussion
- Jimmy Hopps – drums
Although we had thought that this concert was in the summer of 1973, we have now learned that it was held on July 7, 1972.Β Both Sanders and Brown/Jenkins preformed on that day.
The full version of this film shows Pharoah playing soprano, tenor, and percussion as well as singing. It also shows him leaving the stage and sitting out in the front row listening to his band, then walking back on stage and waiting to go on again.
As noted in the audio segment, a studio version of βLove is Everywhere,β originally recorded for Impulse in 1973 has Joe Bonner, piano, James Branch, flute, Cecil McBee, bass, Norman Connors, drums, Lawrence Killian, percussion, James Mtume, percussion, and Badal Roy, percussion. We are sure that the bassist on the date of this concert in Harlem was a very young Stanley Clarke. But note that even though Norman Connors did the studio recording, we are not sure who the drummer is in this concert date.
NOTE: Although we were unsure of this when we first put up the video clip from this concert, the drummer is Jimmy Hopps, who played with Pharoah, Joe Bonner, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Jimi Hendrix, Charles Tolliver, Stanley Cowell, and Cecil McBee. Jimmy Hopps is known today as Jimmi EsSpirit.
