Pharoah Sanders Quartet
80 Forsyth St NW
Atlanta, GA 30303
Featuring William Henderson, Nat Reeves and Joe Farnsworth
Legendary tenor-man Pharoah Sanders possesses one of the most distinctive sounds in jazz. Moving between chaos and beauty, his music can be raw and fierce or harmonically rich, and is always spiritually and emotionally expressive. Though he made his name playing free jazz with Coltrane in the mid-’60s, this musical giant now uses his masterful skills and probing soul to navigate the deep currents of the jazz tradition. At 77, Pharoah Sanders proves that age is nothing but a number.
Come early for a pre-show talk by Michael Simanga in the Rialto Lobby at 7 PM!
