In conjunction with the October Global Saxophones feature, Global Village features global saxophonists inspired by jazz and jazz saxophonists who incorporated world influences in their work. Among the artists featured are David Hillyard & the Rock Steady Seven, Canelita Sabrosa, and Gyedu-Bley Ambolley – all with new albums; and two master jazz saxophonists who recently passed away – Pharoah Sanders and Ronnie Cuber – who brought African and Latin music into their work as well.
