Chasin' the Trane: John Coltrane
John William Coltrane, also known as “Trane,” was one of the greatest jazz soprano and tenor saxophonists of the 20th century, performing with some of the most influential musicians of his time. In this concert, the SJMO surveys Coltrane’s work as a musician and composer during his tenure with Miles Davis in the late 1950s, leading to the birth of his own quartet in 1960.
