Have music lovers in your home, or perhaps you’re a jazz junky yourself? You don’t want to miss “Who is John Coltrane?,” Jazz at Lincoln Center’s kick-off concert in their Jazz for Young People concert series. Join leading jazz composer Wynton Marsalis as he explores the life and times of John Coltrane, one of jazz’s most influential saxophonists/composers of all time!

The hour-long, narrated performance will use warmth and humor to introduce key musical concepts and other jazz fundamentals to your child, and is ideal for those in second grade and older.

The concert is part of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Coltrane Festival, and will not only serve an educational purpose for your child, but will provide entertainment to jazz and music fans alike. The performance is being held in JALC’s Rose Theater at Frederick P. Rose Hall, on Saturday, November 3.

    My grandson played trumpet last year as an 8th grader. This year his high school has no band but music is still a big part of our lives. I came of age in Mowtown in the 50′s and 60′s I sang in groups while in the Army and after. We listen to everything from T. Monk to James Taylor. Take 6 to Grady Tate. My grandson likes John Coltranes rendition of “My favorite things”
    And so do I.
