Yesterday, The AB hosted a special show to celebrate John Coltrane's anniversary. He was born on Sept 23rd, 1926.
Belgian Pianist Jef Neve teamed up with Irish/Panamanian jazz singer Jose James for a show that covered many of Coltrane's tracks.Absolutely lovely!
Jose James has a silky smooth voice that mixes jazz tones with drops of hip-hop. He released The Dreamer in January 2008. Here's the title track:
