The show was my 19th Pharoah Sanders show. It was great to see him for one last time, but he is not in great shape.

Musically: tracks one and three are long, mellow, haunting and incredibly vast and spacious; track two is a joyous.Read More

Sanders' first instrument was the clarinet, but he switched to tenor sax as a high school student, under the influence of his band director, Jimmy Cannon.

YouTube; Pharoah Sanders. Biography. Pharoah Sanders possesses one of the most distinctive tenor saxophone sounds in jazz. Harmonically rich and heavy with overtones, Sanders’ sound can be as raw and abrasive as it is possible for a saxophonist to produce. Yet, Sanders is highly regarded to the point of reverence by a great many jazz fans. Although he made his name with expressionistic.Read More
