The music of John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman
Paul Cutlan & Dorian Mode with the Rodric White Trio:
On Thursday 7th March 1963, saxophonist/composer John Coltrane recorded one of his most lush/poignant albums with 40-year-old singer Johnny Hartman.
The music recorded on this day by Coltrane and Hartman was released on the Impulse label later that year, remaining a high point in both artists’ careers and one of the finest records by Coltrane. This landmark recording is an album of lyrical beauty and simply one of the greatest in the jazz canon.
Paul’s uniquely expressive voice as a multi-instrumentalist/composer is informed by many styles, including contemporary classical music, world music, and jazz. Paul is a long-standing member of the Australian Art Orchestra and ARIA winning world-music group MARA! With these groups, he has recorded numerous CDs and has frequently toured Europe, North America, Mexico, and Asia.
Dorian Mode is an award-winning jazz pianist/singer/composer. Dorian has performed at numerous jazz festivals including Montsalvat, Noosa, and Manly, and leading venues across Australia (including the Sydney Opera House) and has appeared on several TV shows including “Hey Hey It’s Saturday” and “The Today Show”. He also composed the music for a travel series for FOX Television in the US. This was followed by his CD “A Cafe in Venice” on La Brava Records.
