Hanah Jon Taylor Artet: Tribute to John Coltrane at Café Coda
September 23 @ 7:00 pm - 11:59 pm
A sepia-toned photograph of Hanah Jon Taylor is shown side-by-side with a black-and-white photo of John Coltrane.
Mark Doox’s religious-icon-style painting “St. John Coltrane The Divine Sound Baptist” looms large over the interior of Café Coda. It’s not the only portrait lining the Willy Street jazz club, but Coltrane is certainly a sort of patron saint of the place. This is, after all, a venue owned by saxophonist Hanah Jon Taylor, who cherishes the spirit of expansion and improvisation that drives Coltrane’s work. On the 76th anniversary of Coltrane’s birth, Taylor will perform here with Pawan Benjamin on woodwinds, Chris Rottmayer on piano, Dushun Mosley on percussion, and Jeremiah Hunt on bass. There’s no easy way to sum up Coltrane’s contributions to music in his 40 years, and you can expect that the Taylor Artet’s performance won’t be easy to pin down either.
