Bandshell

Pharoah Sanders + Brooklyn Raga Massive: Coltrane Tribute

Friday, June 23 , 6:30 pm – 11 pm

Pharoah Sanders and Brooklyn Raga Massive at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.

Tenor saxophonist Pharoah Sanders emerged from the storied and controversial John Coltrane ensembles of the 1960s, where he eschewed traditional jazz structures in favor of expressionistic, wondrous, nearly anarchic sound-making. Ornette Coleman once described him as "probably the best tenor player in the world," and his use of overblowing, "sheets of sound" and other extended techniques made him one of the most important figures in the development of free jazz. In the 50 years (almost to the day) since Coltrane's death, he has released over 30 records, dipping into modal jazz and R&B, but often sticking close to his free jazz roots. And with each new trail he blazes, he brings his signature "sound like a midnight riptide." (The New York Times)

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
