Verve and Universal Music Enterprises are continuing their analogue-only reissue series this year. The 2022 calendar for Acoustic Sounds includes refreshed releases from a lineup of jazz greats. This year's forthcoming releases include: Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong's Ella & Louis, Duke Ellington & Coleman Hawkins' Duke Ellington Meets Coleman Hawkins, and Pharoah Sanders' Karma.
The Acoustic Sounds series was introduced in 2020 and releases LPs stereo remastered from original analog tape recordings and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings.
Karma is a jazz recording by the American tenor saxophonist Pharoah Sanders, released in May 1969 on the Impulse! label. A pioneering work of the "spiritual jazz" style, it has become Sanders' most popular and critically acclaimed album. It is among a number of spiritually-themed albums released on the Impulse! label in the late 1960s/early 1970s. The album's main piece is the 32-minute-long "The Creator Has a Master Plan," co-composed by Sanders with vocalist Leon Thomas.
