Pharoah Sanders at Belgrave Music Hall Leeds
Pharoah Sanders - Belgrave Music Hall 16 November
Pharoah Sanders possesses one of the most distinctive saxophone sounds in jazz and is revered by a great many jazz fans, having made his name with John Coltrane’s spiritually-driven expressionistic ensembles of the mid-60s.
Harmonically rich and heavy with overtones, Sanders’ sound can be raw and abrasive. Yet, his later music is guided by more graceful concerns and has embraced wider resources, from free to mainstream; some of his best work is his most accessible. As a mature artist, Sanders has discovered a hard-edged lyricism that has served him well.
