The world these days is sadly short on musicians of Pharoah Sanders’ stature. For more than 60 years, the Arkansas-born saxophonist has pushed not only the boundaries of his instrument, not only the boundaries of jazz, but the boundaries of music itself. In Sanders’ estimation, music is a tool for spiritual transcendence, and free-jazz/soul-jazz epics like “The Creator Has a Master Plan” and “Love in Us All,” which pulse with a stunning purity of expression, make a powerful case. Do not miss the opportunity to witness a master—now in his mid-70s—in one of the city’s best-sounding rooms.
