Emerging from John Coltrane’s groups of the mid-60s Sanders is known for his overblowing, harmonic, and multiphonic techniques on the saxophone, as well as his use of “sheets of sound.”
The Last Poets have been cited as one of the earliest influences on what would become hip-hop music; critic Jason Ankeny writes, “With their politically charged raps, taut rhythms, and dedication to raising African-American consciousness, the Last Poets almost single-handedly laid the groundwork for the emergence of hip-hop.”
