This is a rare treat! Each of the members of this 20+ member orchestra is a accomplished musician in their own right, with resumes going back 40 years are more. Some took arrangements that Coltrane wrote for a quartet and expanded it for a big band.
THe Venue on the campus of Cal State LA probably holds only a couple thousand seats, so the acoustics are really good. Parking is only $3.00
There are few jazz musicians who have been revolutionary and as widely imitated as saxophonist, John Coltrane. Conductor Charles Owens and the Luckman Jazz Orchestra honor the legacy of John Coltrane in this tribute concert. His passion for experimentation helped his musical evolution take on a distinctive style. He became known for using the three-on-one chord approach, a method of playing multiple notes at one time. Coltrane’s influence extended far outside the realm of jazz. He hoped that his music could effect positive change in the world. More than thirty-seven years after his departure, Coltrane’s music can still be heard in movies, on television and radio.
