John Coltrane Festival

The New Yorker reports about the John Coltrane Festival.

Oct. 26-Nov. 3: A celebration of the life and music of John Coltrane features a number of events for jazz fans of all ages. Here are a few highlights. Oct. 26-27, in the Rose Theatre: The saxophonist Joshua Redman salutes the giant of jazz. Supported by the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Redman will perform iconic Coltrane works in new arrangements. Oct. 26-27, in the Allen Room: McCoy Tyner, one of the most influential pianists of the modern jazz era, is also the only surviving member of Coltrane’s “classic quartet.” Evoking the reflective moods of his former employer, Tyner calls on the bassist Dave Holland and the drummer Jack DeJohnette, as lofty a rhythm team as can be found.
