The Coltrane Dedication Quintet
17th March at 8:00 am to 10:30 pm£13.00 – £14.00
The Coltrane Dedication Quintet is a collective of musicians who recognise the emotional power of the later music of John Coltrane and use those compositions as their own springboard for creating a powerful, engaging, impassioned communication through improvised music.
Coltrane Dedication was borne out of coincidence and recognition; coincidence that the five original bandmembers were due to jam together and realised the gig was on the 40th anniversary of John Coltrane’s death so decided to dedicate that night’s repertoire completely to his catalogue, and recognition that the emotional platform that this exceptional music provides seemed somewhat buried. Why? Well, there is absolutely no doubting the integrity and execution of Coltrane’s work, and his influence on musicians ever since, and well beyond the confines of ‘jazz’ music. We suspect it’s about the fact that it is so emotionally charged that it demands much from both players and audience.
Coltrane Dedication is about taking the spirit of that great movement in music between 1960 and 1967 and laying it out in a 21st century context
The quintet is co led by Lyndon Owen on tenor and Caractacus Downes on baritone supported by Dave Jones on keys, Ashley John Long on bass and Ian Poole on drums.
Always a profound evening, the intensity of the dynamic between these five players produces a single entity whose unity and trust in each other is palpable.
“… the free-wheeling Coltrane Dedication quintet, a fluid unit … stretching out even further on Coltrane tunes … in the company of a pool of leading guest musicians drawn from the South Wales jazz scene and beyond” Ian Mann (The Jazzmann.com)
