JAZZ LEGEND COMES HOME
From 1943 to 1958, 20th-century jazz master John Coltrane lived, composed, studied and played his saxophone right here in Philadelphia. Now, as part of efforts to revitalize the Philadelphia home of Coltrane, the John Coltrane House, the Preservation Alliance invites music and history lovers to view a brand-new documentary titled ‘Coltrane’s Philadelphia’, in its premiere this Wednesday August 7 at one of our favorite venues, International House.
The documentary explores Coltrane’s remarkable years in Philadelphia and features interviews with such artists as renowned saxophonist and Coltrane peer Odean Pope and The Roots’ Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson. Besides the commentary, historic footage of Philadelphia in the film illuminates the urban context in which Coltrane made his beautiful music. A wonderful night!
"It’s Only Rock ’N’ Roll (But I Like It)" Indeed we do. The ’50 and Counting tour’ currently moving around North America serves as a persuasive reminder of the band’s undimmed powers. After wowing the Sofitel cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, Montreal and Chicago this week the Stones land in Philly followed by DC later in the month. Don’t miss the band performing 23 songs over 2½ hours of pure rock ‘n’ roll magic. Philly tickets can be found here.
