"Coltrane's Sound"
A Tribute to the Great Saxophone Legend
John Coltrane is the undisputed modern master of the tenor saxophone. From his early work with Miles Davis to his famous 60’s quartet, Trane spent his brief time on this planet continually searching for new ideas and breaking new ground. Today, after more than fifty years since his death, you’d be hard pressed to find a serious jazz tenor player who hasn’t been influenced by this great master. 
The most in demand tenor sax player in Northern New Mexico, Alex Murzyn moved to Santa Fe in 2017 from the San Francisco Bay Area. After thirty years his resume includes The Stan Kenton Legacy Band, The Dizzy Gillespie Big Band, Bobby Hutcherson, Arturo Sandoval, Freddie Hubbard, and Stanley Clarke. He is one of the most versatile saxophone players and one of the very few who can take on a project like this. 
Alex will take you from Coltrane’s early “Sheets of Sound” right up through the ground breaking work he contributed to the Modal Jazz Scene of the 1960’s, and thrill you at every turn. For this concert Alex will be accompanied by Bob Fox on piano, Terry Burns on bass and John Trentacosta on the drums. Without a doubt you don’t want to miss this amazing tribute.
