On Sunday, September 8, 2:00PM.-5:00PM, Art Sanctuary kicks off its 2013 Fall season with the Annual ‘A Jazz Tribute: Celebrating the Life of John Coltrane’, honoring the life and legacy of one of our nation’s greatest jazz musicians. The event will take place on Diamond Street in North Philadelphia, between 18th and 19th streets.  The rain location will be at Church of the Advocate, 1801 W. Diamond St.


As artists, musicians and more celebrate what would have been Coltrane’s 87th birthday this September, Art Sanctuary hosts an afternoon remembering the incredible saxophonist and composer, and the tremendous contributions he made to, not only the jazz genre, but to the music and arts landscape as a whole. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes in jazz and later was at the forefront of free jazz. He organized at least fifty recording sessions as a leader during his recording career, and appeared as a sideman on many other albums, notably with trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk. Coltrane influenced innumerable musicians, and remains one of the most significant tenor saxophonists in jazz history. 


Art Sanctuary’s Annual ‘A Jazz Tribute: Celebrating the Life of John Coltrane’ will feature headliners, the Urban Guerilla Orchestra and the Grover Washington Tribute Legacy Band, along with performances by Nazir & Friends, featuring Leon Jordan, Jr. and Sam Reed, and Alfie Pollit & Allstar Musical Friends featuring Buster Williams and Umar Raheem. Along with great music, the afternoon will include food, vendors and fun for the entire family. 

Art Sanctuary’s Annual ‘A Jazz Tribute: Celebration the Life of John Coltrane’ is free and open to the public, and will take place rain or shine. The event is produced in partnership with The Producer’s Guild and The Church of the Advocate.
