There are few names more synonymous with jazz than John Coltrane. The great saxophonist was a seminal figure in the development of bebop and one of the pioneers of free jazz. This Sunday, several artists will pay tribute to Coltrane. Veteran jazz saxophonist Steve Heckman will be joined by bassist Marcus Shelby, pianist Matt Clark and local drummer Akira Tana to play renditions of some of Coltrane’s best known and most important works. Also on the bill: several passionate poetry readings by Poetess Kalamu Chaché and jazz vocalist George V. Johnson Jr.
