This gig features a mighty ten – member version of the Coltrane Project to play John Coltrane’s rarely performed magnum opus Ascension. The original recording from 1965 lasts 40 minutes and is a work of intense energy. The Coltrane Project last played Ascension at the Side On Café in 2004 and was recorded by the ABC for Live on Stage. This version of the Coltrane Project band will include 2 basses and a talented array of improvisers with different approaches. Ascension features each soloist in turn alternating with barrages of horns and drums as the whole ensemble reaches for the stars!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
