Bob Pollitt has been deemed a legend for his tenor saxophone sound as big as a house, an unparalleled feeling for everything from ballads and bop to blues and funk, while continuing to be stylistically forward-looking and innovative. He’s appeared with past and present greats — particularly effective in a organ trio setting, by the way - including John Coltrane, Sonny Stitt, James Moody, Frank Foster, Jimmy Heath, Pharoah Sanders and Richard "Groove" Holmes. Pollitt, who also has been teaching extensively for years, was and is way ahead of his time.
