Just tuned back in after some (sweaty!) errands, ind diggin' hell out of the Alice Coltrane / Pharoah Sanders sequence. Is there anything harp (as played by she) does not go with? Did i hear something about Bill Laswell being in the mix there? Anything he touches always sounds fantastic.

Yup! Laswell produced the album, Save Our Children. 1998. Also the one before that, called Message From Home. I wish they'd do another!
