Free Local Jazz Concert: Tribute to John Coltrane Nov 7

If you like jazz, you'll want to catch A Tribute to John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" this Thursday, November 7 at 7:30pm, at Oakhurst Presbyterian Church. The free concert will be performed by Matt Wauchope (of the Mar-tans) with Justin Chesarek (drums), Scott Glazer (bass) and the incomparable Clarence Johnson (tenor sax) all the way from New Orleans! The concert is free, but they will "pass the plate" for donations which will go to Heifer International.

"A Love Supreme" is generally considered to be among John Coltrane's greatest works, as it melded the hard bop sensibilities of his early career with the free jazz style he adopted later. If you want to see some wildly talented jazz musicians do their thing, then don't miss this. Oakhurst Presbyterian is located at the corner of East Lake Drive and 2nd Avenue. Park on the streets or behind the church.
