Darek Oles Presents Coltrane's Sound - In His Words

I asked Darek to share with his thoughts on John Coltrane and the show he will be presenting...

We will commemorate 50 years of the passing of John Coltrane, the musical legend that influenced us so much. John Coltrane's music had a huge impact on my life, growing up in Poland. In the late 1980's, I was fortunate to meet the Coltrane family.

I performed and recorded with Alice Coltrane (John Coltrane wife), his sons Ravi and Oran and his step daughter Michelle. Ravi Coltrane was my classmate at California Institute Of The Arts. We played lots of music at the college and after we graduated, in different groups. We have recently performed, with Ravi, a tribute to John Coltrane [at] a jazz festival in my home town Wroclaw, in Poland.

On July 18, in San Diego I will present a tribute to John Coltrane; the group I named "Coltrane's Sound", after an album that Coltrane recorded in 1960. We will perform the arrangements from the "Coltrane's Sound" album. That album contains some of the most influential Coltrane's compositions and arrangements. 

The group will be a quintet: Chuck Manning; a great saxophonist and Larry Koonse, great guitarist. I have worked with those musicians for almost 30 years. Jon Mayer; pianist , who actually performed and recorded with John Coltrane circa 1960, Roy McCurdy, a veteran drummer, who also got to meet and play with Coltrane. They sounds just amazing playing Coltrane's music!

Darek also sets the stage for one of the most memorable Jazz Live San Diego interviews, 

"I would like all the musicians participate in the interview for your radio show. Jon and Roy have great stories from the old days to share, about their experiences with John Coltrane." Sounds GREAT to me!

I realize the concert is sold out. I just found out, because of being very ill. I'm retired, disabled , and use a mobile scooter (EVC), to assist my mobility. I would deeply appreciate it if I could sit in a disabled place to listen to the concert. John Coltrane is my ALLTIME favorite musician!! Please Please Please. I just have to hear a live rendition of 'A Love Supreme'. Thanking you deeply. I could pick up the ticket anytime at will call.
