We Four: A Tribute to John Coltrane

Saturday, March 26

Bowker Auditorium   8:00 pm
$25, $15; Five College/GCC/STCC students and youth 17 and under: $10

Legends and young lions come together for a concert that lovingly pays tribute to John Coltrane and the music of his time. Coltrane created some of the most innovative and expressive music in Jazz history. Having worked with countless jazz musicians over the years, drummer Jimmy Cobb is probably most renowned for his contribution on Miles Davis' recording of Kind of Blue. The evening's program will include the music of Coltrane plus original material from the ensemble.

 

 

"There's a moment on Miles Davis' 'stella by Starlight" in 1958 that crystallizes drummer

Jimmy Cobb's brilliance. Jimmy's seamless

change from wispy brushes behind Miles to solid wood rim shots to support Coltrane completely

changes the mood and energy level of the standard" (Jazz Wax ).
