Jazz Unlimited for December 9, 2018 will be “Coltrane Tunes Without Coltrane.” The great saxophonist John Coltrane left us a number of compositions that are sometimes tricky and difficult to play, sometimes beautiful and sometimes very spiritual, among other attributes. We will play some of these inspiring compositions without Coltrane in big band, piano and small group settings. They will be played by the Buddy Rich Band, our own John Hicks, our own Pee Wee Russell, the Woody Herman band, Sonny Fortune, Karrin Allyson, John McLaughlin, Janice Borla, the Conrad Herwig Latin Side of… group, Kenny Garrett, Vijay Iyer, Kurt Elling, the Maria Schneider Orchestra, Kenny Werner, Doug Raney, the Jim McNeely Tentette, Suzanne Pittson, McCoy Tyner, Kenny Garrett, the Turtle Island String Quartet, the Herbie Hancock/Michael Brecker/Roy Hargrove Directions in Music group, Jack DeJohnette’s Special Edition and John’s wife Alice and their son Ravi Coltrane.
