Floating Points, Four Tet + More To Perform Pharoah Sanders ‘Promises’ At Hollywood Bowl

British electronic musician Floating Points otherwise known as Sam Shepherd has announced a 2023 show with Shabaka Hutchings, Four Tet, Caribou, and The Los Angeles Studio Orchestra who will perform Promises at the Hollywood Bowl on September 20, 2023.

Floating Points along with the late free jazz saxophonist Pharoah Sanders collaborated with the London Symphony Orchestra on their collaborative album Promises which was released back in March 2021. 

The album achieved high rankings in year-end lists including a No. 1 spot in Time Magazine’s The 10 Best Albums of 2021

Pharoah Sanders died peacefully and surrounded by family in Los Angeles on September 24, 2022 at the age of 81. In Shepard’s most recent Instagram post he shares that “In the weeks before his passing, Pharoah and I talked about doing a single live performance of ‘Promises’ together with a large orchestra.”

Shepard also added that “While working on the album together, he would always ask with such fondness after our friend Shabaka- someone he’d seen play several times and greatly admired…” 

The performance of ‘Promises’ holds extreme sentimental value in the sense that the spirit of Sanders will flow through the music as Floating Points pulls off their shared vision of a live performance with a large orchestra, and the presence of Shabaka whom he had greatly admired.

Tickets for the Hollywood Bowl show go on sale May 2. Sign up for the presale here.
