Tribute to John Coltrane

on the 50th anniversary of his landmark recording "A Love Supreme"
In 1957 saxophonist John Coltrane was fired from the Miles Davis band due to drug addiction. He went on to form his own band, straightened out, came back and recorded A Love Supreme, a four- part suite, in 1964 with McCoy Tyner on piano, Billy Garrison on bass, and the powerful Elvin Jones on drums. It has been described as Coltrane's offering of humility and thanks to God. In short, a song of thanksgiving presented on Thanksgiving weekend this 50th anniversary of the original recording with local musicians Wayne Davidson on sax, Jack Woulfe on piano, Colin DeHond on bass, and Rick Weber on drums. The ensemble will open the evening with a selection of John Coltrane's standards.
