On the Next All This Jazz: Trane Songs (Music Written By and For John Coltrane, on His Birthday)

Sep 18, 2015

Listen for the next edition of All This Jazz, right here on Public Radio 89.5 KWGS-FM, airing at 9pm on Saturday the 19th -- or online via live stream at publicradiotulsa.org. (We'll also rebroadcast the show on Sunday the 20th at 7pm on Jazz 89.5-2, which is our station's all-jazz-all-the-time HD Radio channel.)

From Duke Ellington to Duke Pearson to Duke Jordan, our program delivers three hours of modern jazz -- across a range of styles -- each and every Saturday night, from 9 till midnight.

On the forthcoming installment of ATJ: Jimmy Heath, Spanish Harlem Orchestra, Monty Alexander, Art Taylor, Avishai Cohen, and more. And in the theme-driven, 11-to-midnight hour of All This Jazz, we'll be featuring songs composed by and for John Coltrane in honor of his birthday. (Surely among the most visionary and influential musicians in jazz history -- make that in American music history -- Trane was born on 9/23/1926 and died at the age of 40.)

Thus we'll hear Woody Herman playing "Lazy Bird," Hubert Laws playing "Moment's Notice," Kenny Garrett playing "Giant Steps," Clifford Jordan playing a Bill Lee piece entitled "John Coltrane," and so on.

Join us, fellow jazz freaks! We've got the goods and then some.

(Two final points: ATJ playlist information can be found here...and we also maintain a Facebook page for our show. Gracias.)
