Thank You Trane
"dedicated to you"
Music by Steve Heckman (sax), Pat Klobas (bass), and Ron Marabuto (drums)
Poetry by Blake More
Written at the request of Jazz instigator Fred Adler "Thank You Trane" was a direct result of an intensive inquiry into the life and music of John Coltrane. It was performed as part of the 3rd Annual Redwood Coast Whale and Jazz Festival at the Gualala Arts Center.
Here's an excerpt from the program:
After intermission, Act II begins…opening with A Poetry Tribute to the Legendary John Coltrane by Blake More accompanied by Heckman on tenor sax, followed by SF’s premier jazz vocalist Kenny Washington with The Bay Area World Class Jazz Quintet featuring SFCJQ plus Kesecker on vibes/marimba performing standards, classics, blues, ballads and scat!
