Pharoah Sanders Leon Thomas The Creator KING Mix Part 3

A snippet of Pharoah playing the Creator as a taster of the 32 minute Earth shattering all encompassing definitive version of this all time classic
that I intend to render and put up at some point in the future.

Till then why not enjoy Leon Thomas in fine voice singing "The Creator Has A Master Plan. Peace and happiness to everyone..."

Amos Leon Thomas Jr (1937 May 8, 1999) was an American avant garde jazz singer from East St. Louis, Illinois.

He changed his name to Leone in 1974 because of an interest he had in numerology at the time. He did not legally change his name and he reverted back to Leon shortly thereafter.

Leon is best known for his work with Pharoah Sanders and this work in particular which was first released in 1969 song "The Creator Has a Master Plan" from Pharoah's Karma album. Leon's most distinctive device was his inimitable yodel and he often broke out into yodeling in the middle of a vocal. It is claimed that his yodel style has influenced such diverse talents as James Moody and Tim Buckley, among others.

Leon studied music at Tennessee State University and went on to tour wand record with and as a member of Santana from1973.

Leon died of heart failure on May 8, 1999.
