The Coming of John (the evening and the morning are the first day)

Show description for Sunday 9/26/2010 @ 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM

This afternoon on New Day Jazz, we celebrate the music of John Coltrane, born September 23, 1926, in Hamlet, North Carolina. Rather than exploring the canonical compositions & improvisations, we will focus on Coltrane as both balladeer and bluesman, exploring his earliest dates as a leader. We will continue on to his first experiments building his "classic quartet," and conclude with his most fully realised concert work from his final years. Along the way we will hear poetry from Michael S. Harper, Wanda Coleman, Nathaniel Mackey, and the underground legend of Chicago, Amus Mor, all in tribute to Coltrane and his legacy.

"There is a daringly human quality to John Coltrane's music that makes itself felt, wherever he records. If you can hear, this music will make you think of a lot of weird and wonderful things. You might even become one of them." ~ LeRoi Jones, Coltrane Live at Birdland
