“He's probably the best tenor player in the world." —Ornette Coleman

We have received news that Pharoah Sanders fell and broke his hip at the end of March. Therefore, his performance scheduled for Saturday, June 1, 2019 is cancelled. We wish Sanders a speedy recovery and hope to present him at a future Burlington Discover Jazz Festival. All ticket purchasers will be contacted regarding refunds.

Following his bandleader and mentor John Coltrane into the enigmatic twists of the avant-garde, tenor sax legend Pharoah Sanders pressed on until his playing turned transcendent. His early records, such as Tauhid (1966) and Karma (1969), lend themselves to engagement beyond just listening. On them, Sanders explores the breadth of anarchic free jazz, wrestling with the sacred and profane via psychedelic beatitudes and sax hosannas. Prolific for over 50 years, Sanders’ influence is immeasurable. His later works are characterized by a cerebral mellowing of his more aggressive edge, an ebbing into mature gracefulness with no sacrifice of intensity. Sanders’ lyrical arabesques further adorn the Flynn’s MainStage in an evening’s program bound to entrance, to unify, to transcend.
