Event marks jazz master’s birthday
The life and legacy of the late, legendary virtuoso jazz saxophonist and composer John Coltrane will be celebrated two days prior to what would have been his 87th birthday by the celebrated John Coltrane Tribute Band in a special free evening concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, at Cold Spring’s Chapel Restoration.
The John Coltrane Tribute Band is comprised of Roy Campbell Jr. (last heard at Chapel Restoration with Other Dimensions in Music in 2011) on trumpet, flugelhorn and pocket trumpet; Louis Belogenis (who just completed curating at NYC’s storied performance space The Stone) on tenor and soprano saxophones; Roberta Picket on piano; Hilliard Greene on bass and Michael Wimberly on drums. For this celebration of Coltrane’s birthday, there will be free admission though donations will be accepted. No advance tickets will be made available.
Chapel Restoration is located at 45 Market St., Cold Spring, and is directly across from the Cold Spring Metro-North Station, where free parking is available on weekends.
