Gilad Atzmon and the Orient House Ensemble
A new project for the Gilad Atzmon led Orient House Ensemble, celebrating John Coltrane. It is fifty years since John Coltrane died and Gild aims to mark those years without the Trane, 'The Spirit of Trane' is his attempt to reflect upon the beauty of the man’s music. John Coltrane was the most influential tenor saxophonist in jazz history.
Whether it is his patentedsheets of sound, his rapid-fire improvisations, the advanced harmonic progressions, the sonic impact of the best jazz quartet ever or his lush interpretations of the most beautiful ballads, no aspiring music lover can afford to neglect the music of Trane. But Coltrane is far greater than the sum of his outstanding musical achievements. He was a voice of a generation, an artistic revolutionary spirit, a man who transformed anger into love and plight into a humanist message. Coltrane is for us jazz at its best: an authentic creative wave of constant transformation and innovation. Trane is for us, first and foremost, a spirit.
If you join us this night, we hope you enjoy this musical journey.
Line Up: Gilad Atzmon– tenor & soprano sax, clarinet, bass clarinet & flute, Frank Harrison– piano, Yaron Stavi– acoustic bass and Enzo Zirilli– drums
