Recommended by Charles Mudede

The great Pharoah Sanders is a saxophonist who entered jazz history at the end of John Coltrane’s blazing career but short life (Coltrane died at the age of 40). Coltrane left the world on a free/cosmic jazz tip. Sanders made significant contributions to this final movement—check out the record Ascension. Sanders was a part of the moment that jazz went not only cosmic, but also global. He traveled far and wide, played with a variety of human beings, and connected with the deeper human current. Sanders also provided a haunting piece of music, “Kazuko,” for the French thriller Love Crime. The scene of Ludivine Sagnier killing Kristin Scott Thomas as Sanders sorrowfully blows is one of the best things to happen in cinema this decade. Sanders is performing as a part of the 2014 Earshot Jazz Festival.
