The Pharoah Sanders Quartet plays the Rialto Oct. 14

The tenor sax master explores the nuances of fiery music by basking in rich harmonies and bombastic overtones pushed to the max

In February of 1969, Pharoah Sanders changed the shape of jazz to come with when he unveiled the album, Karma. Drop a needle on the album nearly 50 years later and the expansive, sidelong cosmic journey "The Creator Has a Master Plan' weaves a tapestry of modal, post-bop and avant-garde musical exploration the likes of which the world has yet to encounter anywhere else. It's a career-defining work that raises the bar high for both structured and free jazz performance. Now 77 years old, the tenor sax master still explores the nuances of fiery music cosmically, spiritual, and instinctively by basking in rich harmonies and bombastic overtones pushed to the max.

For this quarter performances, Sanders leads a group filled out by pianist William Henderson, bass player Nat Reeves, and drummer Joe Farnsworth.

$56. 8 p.m. Sat., Oct. 14. Rialto Center for the Arts, 80 Forsyth St. NW. 404-413-9849. www.rialto.gsu.edu.
