Pharoah Sanders

Pharoah Sanders (born Farrell Sanders) is an American jazz saxophonist known for his spiritual jazz style, including overblowing, harmonic, and multi-phonic techniques, as well as the improvisational “sheets of style.” In the mid-60s, he was a noted member of John Coltrane’s groups, but quickly made a name for himself as a leader, releasing over 30 albums, and collaborations with other legendary artists including Leon Thomas, Alice Coltrane, and Sun Ra. Pharoah continues to release music and perform both as a leader and collaborator.
