An important and somewhat overlooked contributor to the music canvas with his circular breathing continuous fluid tenor sax poetry, Odean Pope; is a blessing on the Philadelphia Jazz scene. Please visit his website http://www.odeanpope.com to learn more about this selfless mentor and teacher. Odean Pope (born October 24, 1938, Ninety Six, South Carolina) is an American jazz tenor saxophonist.[1] Pope was raised in Philadelphia, where he learned from Ray Bryant while young.[2] Early in his career, at Philadelphia’s Uptown Theater, Pope played behind a number of noted rhythm and blues artists including James Brown, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder.[3] He played briefly in the 1960s with Jimmy McGriff, and late in the 1960s he began working with Max Roach, including on tours of Europe in 1967-68. He was a member of Philadelphia group Catalyst in the early and mid-1970s, and assembled the Saxophone Choir, which consists of nine saxophones and a rhythm section (piano, bass and drums), in 1977. He became a regular member of Roach's quartet in 1979 and has recorded extensively with him, in addition to numerous releases as a leader. Pope has publicly spoken about his bipolar disorder, which he has had for over 30 years.[4] Pope was quoted in 2001 as saying, “Every time I pick that horn up there's always something that I discover I can do differently if I really seek.

If you were on planet Earth for, like, 2 billion years, I feel as though there's always something new that you can find to do. There's no end.” [3] Discography: As leader: Almost Like Me (1982) The Saxophone Shop (Soul Note, 1985) The Ponderer (Soul Note, 1990) Out for a Walk (1990) Epitome (Soul Note, 1993) Ninety Six (1996) Collective Voices (1996) Ebioto (1999) Changes & Changes (1999) Philadelphia Spirit in New York, (2001) CIMP [5] Nothing Is Wrong (2004) Two Dreams (2004) Locked & Loaded: Live at the Blue Note (2006) U.S. Jazz #24[6] The Misled Children Meet Odean Pope (2008) Odean's List (2009) In+Out Records Odean's Three (2012) In+Out Records As sideman With Max Roach: Pictures in a Frame (Soul Note, 1979) In the Light (Soul Note, 1982) It's Christmas Again (Soul Note, 1984) Easy Winners (Soul Note, 1985) Bright Moments (Soul Note, 1986) To the Max!
