Veteran Pharoah Sanders (1940) is without a doubt a more than legendary saxophonist and flutist. For many jazz lovers the man from Little Rock is forever connected to the work of the great John Coltrane. That was in the mid-1960s, but before that time he had already built quite a reputation. In 1965 he participated in the Coltrane sessions that delivered groundbreaking records like Ascension and Meditations. As a soloist he also made albums that created a buzz, such as Tauhid (1966) and Karma (1969). The latter included the track The Creator Has A Masterplan, that was later recorded by many others, including Louis Armstrong himself. Following his period with Coltrane, Sanders worked with Lonnie Liston Smith and Carla Bley, among others. After that he began mixing the rhythm & blues of his youth with avant-garde jazz and African rhythms, including Moroccan Gnawa music. Sanders will enter the stage with pianist William Henderson, bassist Oli Hayhurst and drummer Gene Calderazzo.
