For a couple of years beginning in 1965, Sanders worked frequently with John Coltrane, playing on several influential recording dates during the period when Coltrane was extending the boundaries he had previously breached with his music. Sanders’ playing with Coltrane was marked by a ferocious tone which sometimes growled, sometimes screeched and, within a limited range, he shaped intriguing and often adventurous phrases. In 1968, he played with the Jazz Composer’s Orchestra led by Michael Mantler and Carla Bley. In his mid-career Sanders rarely extended the format of his earlier popular success and many of his 70s and 80s records were curious and unsuccessful mixtures of jazz, strings and vocals (most notably by Leone Thomas ) that offered fairly banal paeans to peace and love. In the late 80s, he reverted to a more purely instrumental jazz and was later a familiar figure at international festivals, playing in a style that displayed a clear understanding of bebop and hinted only occasionally at his earlier espousal of the sometimes less accessible aspects of the freedom principle. His two records for Verve Records were produced by Bill Laswell.
