British jazz-rock pioneers Nucleus were led by trumpeter Ian Carr and remained active throughout the seventies. Thomas is of course best known for being the yodeling voice of The Creator Has a Master Plan, which took up the bulk of Pharoah Sanders’ 1969 LP Karma, and is the centrepiece of the tenor giant’s live sets to this day. The version that opens this 1970 Montreux jazz festival set is very different, not least due to Chris Spedding’s extended guitar techniques, which lends the fine ensemble an almost post-punk angularity at times. Gatefold double LP or CD in LP-replica sleeve.
