Concert: Jazz Kevin Lawlor
Date: Friday 4th May Time: 8.30pm Admission: € 14/€12
Kevin Lawlor Quartet – Music of John Coltrane
John Coltrane is one of the most iconic figures jazz has ever produced and had an almost instantly recognizable tone and sound on tenor saxophone. He came to major attention as part of the Miles Davis
Quintet that would go on to record Kind of Blue before a legendary 6 month residency in with Thelonious Monk.
He forged a career through relentless searching for a new approach to improvisation, eventually forming a stellar Quartet. His music took on a more spiritual approach with albums such as Love Supreme with his music eventually becoming somewhat controversial before his death in 1967 when he was only 40 years old.
Kevin Lawlor Quartet will be performing music from his early career as well as pieces from Blue Train, Giant Steps, the social comment piece ‘Alabama’ and other great Trane pieces.
