A John Coltrane Birthday Broadcast (on the Next All This Jazz)

Sep 21, 2017

The legendary John Coltrane, who died in 1967, would have turned 91 on Saturday the 23rd. On the next All This Jazz, starting at 9pm on that same Saturday, our third-hour theme (running from 11:00 till midnight) will be A John Coltrane Birthday Broadcast. Thus we'll hear Trane's tunes performed by a host of different jazz greats, including Archie Shepp, the SFJAZZ Collective, Karrin Allyson, Steve Kuhn, and more. And elsewhere in our program, we’ll dig music by the likes of Woody Shaw, Ronnie Cuber, Steve Nelson, Carla Bley, and Vijay Iyer, to name just a few. Every Saturday night, both online and over the air, ATJ delivers three solid hours of recent and classic jazz, across a wide range of styles. From Chris Connor to Kris Davis, Duke Pearson to Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck to Dave Douglas, and Herbie Nichols to Herbie Hancock, All This Jazz is delighted by modern (and post-modern!) jazz in its many forms, and we love sharing the same with our listeners. So, please join us.... (Also, note that ATJ playlist information can usually be found here, although you'll have to scroll down a bit -- and we also maintain a Facebook page for our show. Thanks.)
