It has been forty years since John Coltrane passed away. One of the most innovative jazz composers and performers of the twentieth century died in nineteen sixty-seven at the age of forty. During his last ten years John Coltrane revolutionized the way the saxophone was played and introduced new colors of compositional techniques and ideas to the jazz world. For musicians throughout the world John Coltrane’s open-mindedness towards eastern philosophy, world religion and spirituality has been an inspiration towards the amalgamation of music and life. John Coltrane left a musical light that inspired musicians of generations to come.
A TRIBUTE TO TRANE are four musicians from three different countries celebrating John Coltrane’s musical and philosophical ideas: The music and life of John Coltrane as seen through the eyes of Morten Ramsbøl, bass, Søren Møller, piano, Fredrik Kronkvist, alto saxophone, and Antonio Sanchez, drums. The repertoire on this recording consists of John Coltrane’s compositions, and arrangements of jazz standards related to his legendary quartet as well as original compositions that are associated with his life and legacy.
With A TRIBUTE TO TRANE this new international quartet would like to celebrate the visionary, compositional, and philosophical ideas of John Coltrane. The quartet had a fantastic time recording and producing this album. We feel that, through the use of complex harmony and high-energy rhythmic interplay, we have successfully created a modern jazz album that pays tribute to one of the finest musicians and composers of all time: John Coltrane.
