The 38th John Coltrane Memorial Concert (JCMC) will be a tribute to the great legacies of creative music pioneered by Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane. The decision by presenter Friends of John Coltrane Memorial Concert (fJCMC) to link Coltrane and Coleman was spurred on by Ornette Coleman’s death earlier this year. It is well-known that both Coltrane and Coleman are considered some of the most advanced and innovative musicians of the 20th and early 21st century, both having been significantly influenced by Charlie Parker.

Ornette Coleman had significant impact and influence on the development of John Coltrane’s musical concepts in the 1950’s and 1960’s as related to harmonics, composition and improvisation that were often labeled “free jazz “or “avante garde.” Coltrane had private lessons with Coleman during the late 1950’s.

The 38th JCMC will celebrate the powerful musical legacies of these two giants and will feature an all-star ensemble performing new arrangements of some of Coleman’s compositions that were recorded by Coltrane, as well as innovative interpretations of other Coltrane works. The repertoire will include Coleman’s “The Blessing” and “The Invisible” as well as Coltrane compositions including “Lazy Bird,”“Leo” and “Peace On Earth.”

This year’s JCMC ensemble with feature master jazz musicians who also happen to be Boston-based: trumpeters Jason Palmer and Billy Buss; trombonists Jeff Galindo and Rick Stepton; pianist Laszlo Gardony; drummer Yoron Israel; bassist John Lockwood; and Stan Strickland, Carl Atkins, Bobby Tynes and Leonard Brown on reeds and woodwinds.

Eric Jackson of WGBHwillserve as hostfor the concert.

The John Coltrane Memorial Concert is co-produced by saxophonist Leonard Brown, Professor Emeritus of African American Studies & Music at Northeastern University, and keyboardist Emmett G. Price III, Associate Professor of Ethnomusicology and Music Industry at Northeastern and one of the nation's leading experts on African American Music and Culture.

"A richly deserved standing ovation capped another successful

already impatiently awaiting next year’s edition."
