Pharoah Sanders plays live in Washington DC & wins award

Pharoah Sanders was 75 in October 2015 and he marked the milestone with a short residency at the delightfully named Bohemian Caverns in Washington DC. There’s a very positive review by Jackson Sinnenberg here.

Also in October, Pharoah was honoured, along with Archie Shepp, Gary Burton and jazz benevolent society Director, Wendy Oxenhorn. They were recipients of The National Endowment for the Arts 2016 NEA Jazz Masters awards for their significant accomplishments in the field. You can read more about this here.

No news of any British gigs at present though.
