If you are anywhere in the area here is a rare chance to see Pharoah at Scullers. I will be there tonight for both shows. I saw his last time here 3 years ago. He had Harold Mabern on piano and played Body + Soul, Giant Steps, Night Has a Thousand Eyes etc and blew the house down.
I'll check in tomorrow with who he had in the band and how it was (great I will predict from many many other times seeing him).

I've always got the impression that Pharoah is more popular on this side of the Atlantic than at home. I saw him at the Jazz Cafe nearly 10 years ago - excellent. I think he is the closest you can get to Love Supreme era Trane you can get now - but he has his own way too. I think he has a broad appeal outside mainstream jazz - I first knew his music through soul-jazzers Galliano.

As an aside if you like his middle-eastern influenced playing (and Lateefs) I strongly recommend these CDs
