“Celebrating Coltrane” Annual tribute to the quintessential, John Coltrane featuring Tony Dagradi, Derek Douget, Khari Allen Lee, Michael Pellera, Chris Severin and Geoff Clapp.

Leading an all-star group of New Orleans artists, tenor saxophonist Tony Dagradi will again direct an annual tribute to saxophonist, John Coltrane. The evening’s focus will be a wide cross section of music Coltrane’s many ground breaking recordings . Also performing will be saxophonists, Khari Allen Lee and Derek Douget, pianist, Michael Pellera, Chris Severin on bass and Geoff Clapp on drums.

John Coltrane was, after Charlie Parker, the most revolutionary and widely imitated saxophonist in jazz. After internships with Dizzy Gillespie, Johnny Hodges, Thelonious Monk and Miles Davis, Coltrane began a prolific recording and performing career. His early work focused on the standard repertoire common to most jazz artists. However, he relentlessly moved the music forward artistically and technically. In the mid 1960s Coltrane turned to increasingly radical musical styles. His search for new sounds resulted in frequent changes of personnel.

In his final years and after his death, Coltrane has acquired an almost saintly reputation among listeners and fellow musicians for his passionate religious convictions, peaceful demeanor and obsessive striving for a musical ideal.
