This is a presentation that goes beyond the biographical stats that can be found in books and on the web. It is a musical narrative and a look inside the motivation, drive, and spiritual quest that propelled Coltrane in so many controversial yet meaningful directions. His performances and compositions were the result of this searching and searing push that almost literally glued him to his saxophone. The music selections for this program are all John Coltrane compositions or familiar songs that he made popular with his trademark sound. The Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble will perform music selections such as: "A Love Supreme," "Equinox," "My Favorite Things," "Nature Boy" and "Naima."
