The great, cosmic tenor sax pioneer and Little Rock-native Pharoah Sanders will appear (playing sax and flute) on the latest John Coltrane live reissue to be released by Impulse! & Resonance Records in September, according to Pitchfork. The record is a previously (mostly) unavailable 90-minute concert featuring John and Alice Coltrane, Sanders and Rashied Ali at Temple University on November 11, 1966, and will be released on CD and LP, along with a 24-page booklet of liner notes by Coltrane biographer Ashley Kahn.

Sanders, who went by the nickname "Little Rock" for several years while first starting out in Oakland and New York City (where Sun Ra eventually updated his moniker), will also be headlining on May 2 at this year's Jazz Fest in New Orleans.
