One of the great tenor (and soprano) saxophone voices, composer John Coltrane was born on September 23, 1926. Join us in celebrating his birthday!
“Trane” (September 23, 1926 – July 17, 1967), was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Working in the bebop and hard bob idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes in jazz and later was at the forefront of free jazz. He organized at least fifty recording sessions as a leader during his recording career, and appeared as a sideman on many other albums, notably with trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk. This Sunday, The Velvet Note presents its 6th Annual John Coltrane Birthday Tribute show .
This year, our celebration features John Sandfort on Tenor Saxophone, Grammy-Winner Kevin Smith on Bass, Nick Rosen on Piano and Justin Varnes on Drums.
ONE SHOW ONLY: 7:00pm. Admission: $29.
