International Jazz Day Celebration, with a musical tribute to John Coltrane presented by Africa Brass featuring world renown saxophonist Mr. Tim Green with special guests Matt Lemmler (piano/vocals), and Rob Wagner (saxophone). Africa Brass represents the most innovative, globally inspired marriage of brass and drums.To envision the sound of Africa Brass, close your eyes, and imagine the sound of West African rhythms connecting with Jazz and ultimately falling in love with New Orleans brass. Africa Brass’ music has been described as powerful, moving, and spiritual, bridging the cultures of two continents and eight centuries. The music of John Coltrane crossed this bridge as the sounds of West Africa greatly influenced Trane,and his music and spirit has inspired Africa Brass. Its one of the many reason why we pay a special tribute to him on this International Day of Jazz celebration.
