This release includes guests:  Will Downing, Maysa, Incognito, Eric Roberson and Phil Perry, among others.  You can hear cuts from Poetry In Motion at various times on  Jazz 91.9 WCLK in particular during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.

Trane: The Atlantic Collection (VIDEO)

Aug 6, 2017

2017 has been a good year for John Coltrane fans.  First,  the John Scheinfeld film Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary revealed his life and music to new audiences (which WCLK screened May 2017 at Midtown Arts Cinemas as a member engagement activity).  Now, Rhino Records is re-releasing a number of Coltrane's Atlantic Records-era releases.

A complete box set preceded this compilation.   The set is a compelling collection that showcases some of Coltrane's most accessible music, recorded between 1959 and 1961, as he moved from legendary sideman to bandleader. You can hear cuts from Trane: The Atlantic Years at various times on Jazz 91.9 WCLK in  particular during Serenade To The City from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.

Chuck Loeb, a versatile guitarist, composer and producer best known for his associations with Stan Getz, Steps Ahead and Fourplay, died at 9:00 p.m. on July 31, according to his family.  Loeb, whose compositions have been recorded by a wide variety of artists  was 61 years old.   He had suffered from cancer for several years.

Jazz 91.9 WCLK  listeners and Atlanta Jazz fans know Chuck well.  He has been through the WCLK studios on numerous times.  The Jazz 91.9 WCLK 2015 Fall Benefit Concert  featured Fourplay with Loeb on the guitar #RIP.

Join us on the air and online Saturday at noon and again at 9pm for a special program, featuring Loeb’s final Atlanta appearance as part of the Suite Jazz Series.
