Recommendations from Art21 staff

Listen: Promises by Floating Points, Pharoah Sanders, and The London Symphony Orchestra

On paper alone, this collaboration sparks both excitement and intrigue—it’s a cross-generational union of electronic and jazz leanings that turn out to weave together beautifully. Then there’s the album artwork, featuring a panel of shapes seemingly extracted from Julie Mehretu‘s 2003 painting, Congress, masking an image of that same painting (vinyl enthusiasts are treated to a satisfying die-cut gatefold presentation that reveals the full painting when opened). The sum of all these parts is a stirring and emotional journey in nine movements that demand your full attention.
