Philadelphia is a Saxophone City!

Saxophone City - A tribute to Philadelphia's great saxophone legacy


I was awarded a Black Music City grant from REC Philly for this project, celebrating Juneteenth. Featuring Philly Saxophonists Yesseh Furaha Ali, Josh Lee, Tim Warfield, and Kynoebi Simpson. In this video, we play homage to John Coltrane on Impressions. Although he was born in North Carolina, Coltrane began playing saxophone when he moved to Philadelphia at age 17. His North Philadelphia home still stands. He left a profound impact on the city that is still felt today.
