Regular readers may know that Pharoah Sanders is a saxophonist that I enjoy very much.
When checking to see if any UK dates are scheduled (sadly, none listed at present), I came across a recent live review by Gary Vercelli, which you can read here. The author was wondering if 74 year old Pharoah can still perform at a high level. His conclusion is that:-
Pharoah Sanders showed that age is just a number. He still negotiates the chord changes with ease and finesse and inner child is still very much alive!
That’s good news– hopefully we’ll see for ourselves later in 2015.
