Interestingly, Sanders’ journey to jazz greatness was not a straightforward one. Born into poverty in Arkansas in 1940, he moved to Oakland, California, where he played drums in a local R&B band. He later switched to tenor saxophone and joined Sun Ra’s Arkestra. However, it wasn’t until he joined Coltrane’s band in the mid-1960s that he gained recognition as an influential saxophonist in his own right.
