The Creator has a MAster Plan is one of those rare instances where all out passion leads to a completely peaceful place. The band is great and Thomas' Yodelling is quite interesting and of course Pharoah's playing is out of this world. I was to young at the time of this release, but its my understanding that it was a "pop hit." 30 years later Pharoah is still creating wonderful music but no major labels will record him.
I give this 4 stars because the 5 minute filler "colors" is so completely unneccessary. Its hippy-dippy fluff compared to "Creator."

"The Creator Has a Master Plan" is an excellent song -- a must for anyone interested in the groovy sounds of the jazz/world fusion of the 60s, but is heard to better effect in an edited version on the compilation "Red Hot on Impulse!" (an absolutely excellent sampler that will open up a world of great jazz to the listener". The album version gives way to the excesses of the day with bleating, screaming and overblowing segments that serve only to break the infectious groove of the song. The second track is basically filler.

Karma is a departure from many of the similar music of the era, in that it goes towards more pop/pop-culture genre music. At this point in jazz, there was a split between fusion and free jazz.
This album is right down the middle and I recommend it.
