Elvin Jones Jazz Machine / Tribute to John Coltrane

avec Sonny Fortune et Ravi Coltrane
A Love Supreme, Giant Steps, Ascension... Bop. hard bop, blues, free jazz John Coltrane has done it all. And he's one of the greatest musical figures of any style to come out of the United States. Who better than Elvin Jones and John's own son Ravi Coltrane to pay tribute to the master. ln 1960, while he was playing with Jones, McCoy Tyner and Jimmy Garrison, William John Coltrane became the greatest sax player of the post-bop era. Searching for a universal language. Coltrane's goal was a synthesis of ail musical forms into a single message of universel love. Driven by this spirit and carried by his exceptional talent and intelligence, Coltrane created true masterpieces of imagination and virtuosity. was a prodigious career, one unfortunately cut short by cancer at the age of 40. Twenty-five years later, his favourite drummer Elvin Jones and his sax player son Ravi Coltrane relive the great moments of an illustrious career.
