Sam Shepherd (Floating Points): Pharoah...


Pharoah Sanders: Huh...?


Sam: Were you asleep? I'm sorry...


Pharoah: No no... I was listening... and dreaming... and listening to music in my head...


Sam: Oh wow... sorry.


Pharoah: 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.


Sam: What were you dreaming about?


Pharoah: 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.’ I say, ‘Really?’ And I was making fish dinners. Shark... Lobster. Got all kinds of fish. And you know, a good pie. Pumpkin pie. You like pumpkin pie?


Pharoah: How you like that take, Sam?


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.


Pharoah: I think that's it right there. It came out different. It came out good though.
Sam: You happy?


Pharoah: Yeah, I'm cool with it.


Sam: Okay. Yeah, I think your playing is beautiful.
