Pharoah Sanders – ‘Greeting to Saud’
Cloudwalking desert jazz that sounds like someone tinkling on a piano half buried in a sand dune inside a lantern-filled Abu Dhabi souk. Love it.
Here’s an interview with the tenor sax-toting legend himself in all its grainy, VHS, Dutch-subtitled glory and a list of my subsequent thoughts:
1. Prior to watching this clip I did not know that ‘West Coast’ in Dutch is ‘Westkust’.
2. I need to get myself a pair of sunglasses like these and wear them all the time.
3. I’ve also decided to only dance like the Pharoah does at 2:42 from now on. Why get up when you can easily throw your hands in the air from the comfort of your own sofa?
