The Pharoah

I am traveling to England in a couple of weeks.  I just noticed that Pharaoh Sanders is playing at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club when I will be in London.  If I can get tickets, I will be there.  I don't have a lot of Sanders' recordings in my library, but I have thoroughly enjoyed his tribute to Coltrane: Crescent With Love.  This is a wonderful two disc set.  Don't miss it.  I am playing 'Crescent'.  Here's the lineup:
I am also playing 'You've Got To Have Freedom', from Live.   I got this one on a business trip many years ago.  It is one superb live album.  Sanders opens up the cut with a very screechy intro, but hang on.  It is freedom writ in musical notes.  God, but I love jazz.
