John Coltrane’s regrettably short career continues to inspire and influence top artists today, such as award-winning, rising star saxophonist Marcus Strickland. To celebrate Coltrane’s birthday, Strickland and his Quartet will be performing his favorite Coltrane tunes and arrangements, highlighting some of the saxophone master’s invaluable contributions to our music. Choice selections include “My Favorite Things,” “Afro Blue,” “Naima,” “Syeeda’s Song Flute,” and “Liberia.” With Luis Perdomo, Dezron Douglas, and Jeff “Tain” Watts also onstage, this will be a great evening for fans of Coltrane, as well as anyone interested in seeing a top-level quartet perform some of jazz’s most revered and lasting compositions.
