Revisiting Celebrate Coltrane 2019

About The Music | Download The Music | More About John Coltrane

 

One of the most important artists of the 20th century was a Philadelphian. He was our neighbor. He walked among us. He lived among us. He was not born here, but he became a man and a professional musician here. We celebrate his birthday every September 23rd.

 

But, we actually celebrate his mastery, his creativity and his generosity every time we listen to his music or utter his name...

 

JOHN COLTRANE

 

Honoring the day of Coltrane's birth, Philadelphia Jazz Project presents three FREE mixtapes created from performances during our special, CELEBRATE COLTRANE 2019 concerts. These recordings feature some of Philadelphia's finest musicians exploring and interpreting Coltrane's classic compositions and performing them in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, directly across the street from the Philadelphia John Coltrane House back in September of 2019.
