Played a benefit concert at a church tonight and performed "Equinox" and "Autumn Serenade" ( from the album with Johnny Hartman). AND at intermission, among the potluck of sweets there was sweet potato pie (Trane's favorite).

WKCR birthday broadcast starts at midnight tonight.

http://www.studentaffairs.columbia.edu/wkcr/story/john-coltrane-birthday-broadcast-monday-september-23rd

On Monday, September 23rd, WKCR will conduct its annual 24-hour tribute to John Coltrane on the 87th anniversary of his birth. The broadcast will begin at 12:00am on Sunday night, and continue until 12:00am Monday night.

Born on September 23, 1926 in North Carolina, Coltrane was known for his innovative work on alto, tenor, and soprano saxophones. From the late 1940s to the mid-late 1950s, Coltrane collaborated with numerous jazz titans, performing as a sideman with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, and Miles Davis, among others. As his career evolved, Coltrane delved more into the world of avant-garde music, producing some of jazz’s most influential and groundbreaking albums, including 1960’s Giant Steps and 1965’s A Love Supreme.
Join WKCR this Monday as we dedicate 24 hours of programming to celebrate John Coltrane’s prolific career.
