PJP spoke with saxophonist Tim Price about the event and John Coltrane.

PJP: Can you describe the vibe of that day, and the concert for the audience who weren't there? What does this mixtape capture?


Tim Price: The vibe was in a beautiful area across from The Coltrane House - I went to the house and sat on the steps before the concert. A sunny day and a great inspiring band. One of the best and most profound gigs I did that year! And while of a Coltrane tribute in Philly seems the best place for this to happen, the truth is that there will -- and should -- be Coltrane tributes forever in Philadelphia. His legacy was a big and can withstand as many reinterpretations as any in American music.

PJP: What are some of the challenges inherent in playing Coltrane's music?


Tim Price: For a saxophonist, the challenge is to bring yourself into the music and add how you feel. The way Trane played and dimensions he had withing the history of all the music. The call to duty was to bring energy passion and love into this.I grew up listening to Coltrane and has found lifelong inspiration and involvement in this unparalleled music.

PJP: What does John Coltrane mean to artists like the Eye2Eye Trio?

Tim Price:  Well-the chance to have a chord less trio, in this event with the great musicians I played with that day was just a complete joy. Phila Jazz Project is like family to me, they really are there for us- and the inspiration was on tilt that afternoon. He also is one of the real blues tenor saxophone preachers, the message in the notes and tones.

This trio is inventive, precise and thoughtful and can swing and lots of dynamic range. It sparkles, as does the playing. A inspiration to share the stage with these masters! Love them.
PJP: How old were you and when did you first feel like you heard and totally understood Coltrane' music?

Tim Price: I was in 9th grade...when I heard Trane with Miles on " Milestones". A few months later I got "Live At The Village Vanguard"...and I know there was a world waiting for me. Years later I became close friends with Pharoah Sanders, I have a few of his solos transcribed in my "Great Tenor Solos" book. The Trane understanding lays in the fact that he was a dedicated serious player, had a long running study of the horn and music. To me that was one of my challenges and role model aspirations. Plus- he spoke to people when he played that tenor- man that is something.

PJP: What is Coltrane's influence on the Philadelphia Jazz musician?


Tim Price: DEEP! Sounds and stories and levels of human expression for a life of inspiration.

Philly Jazz Quotes

On my first record with him, I used no notes, just sound... I never played as powerfully as I did with Sunny Murray... he plays pulse, not beats.
