Pharoah Sanders

I've been getting publishing royalties and stuff like that. I have just been lucky. They come in at the right time. Sometimes they don't, but I am not wealthy or anything like that. I just love to work. I would rather work three hundred and something days out of the year. I would rather be working. They don't know. I love playing. Then I can really get my music together.More Pharoah Sanders quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm not a jazz artist. Don't get me wrong now, it's all music to me. I just played music and if it's likeable, someone liked the sound, then fine, but I'm not interested in being a jazz musician. I don't consider myself a jazz musician. I don't have anything to do with that word.More Pharoah Sanders quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I love more percussions more than anything. I always wanted to be a drummer.More Pharoah Sanders quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I find that in California I can't find guys that have enough energy. They play a little bit and that's about it. They play less. If I start a tune and then the pianist has to solo, I am looking to everybody to get to a certain climate and then I come back in while the energy is up high. Somehow that doesn't happen.More Pharoah Sanders quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[John Coltrane] liked my qualities as a person and that's the reason why he let me play with him. It wasn't what I was doing musically or my instrument or anything like that. He let me play whatever I wanted to play.More Pharoah Sanders quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
