Listen next: A cosmic journey with legendary sax originator Pharoah Sanders

Moving to New York in 1962, Sanders’ 1964 debut LP Pharoah piqued the interest of John Coltrane, whose band Sanders joined in 1965.

Following Coltrane’s death in 1967, Sanders began incorporating spiritual themes into his compositions, and became a pioneer of the astral jazz sound.

Live In Paris (1975) was performed by Pharoah Sanders Quartet on the 17th of November at the Grans Auditorium / Studio 104. It featured Sanders on tenor sax, Danny Mixon on piano/organ, Calvin Hill on double bass and Greg Bandy on drums.
