17 January Weds – The Coltrane Project
$15.00 – $38.00
Wednesday 17 January 2018, 8.30pm
Following the huge re-launch of this project at Foundry616 last year, it is a great thrill to have these amazing musicians back on stage, playing much more than a tribute show to one of the biggest of jazz greats, John Coltrane.
Led by saxophonist/composer Paul Cutlan and featuring arrangements and originals by himself as well as leaders of some of the best jazz bands in Sydney: saxophonists Sandy Evans and Andrew Robson, plus the inspiring rhythm section of Alister Spence on piano, Lloyd Swanton on bass and Toby Hall on drums.
John Coltrane was a seminal figure in American jazz in the late 1950s and throughout the 60s, who set an extraordinarily high standard for the playing of his own music.
The Coltrane Project began as a tribute concert in 1997 to commemorate the 30th anniversary Coltrane’s death. The idea was to draw inspiration from the style and technique of the Coltrane Quartet, and to play some fantastic repertoire that doesn’t get aired very often. It was a one off concert, but it was such a success, that it led to more shows. As they continued playing, members of the group drew on a different aspect of Coltrane’s work for each concert. The music now features exciting and fresh perspectives on some seminal material.
Such is the drawing power of Coltrane and the reputation of the players in the Coltrane Project that they play sell out concerts whenever they appear in their home town of Sydney.
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear this unique concert featuring some of Sydney’s elite jazz musicians paying homage to the extraordinary vision of a giant of the tenor saxophone.
