“Steve Kenny Quintet Coltrane Show” is a special very high energy and high spiritual performance of some of the more powerful compositions by John Coltrane. It Features Kevin Washington on drums, a noted Coltrane scholar and one of the most famous Minnesota Jazz musicians. Dave Brattain, on saxophones, reprises his storied membership in this experience and does an amazing job channeling the vibe and fireworks of the late great saxophone master. Kavyesh Kaviraj, while emerging as the hands-down best Jazz pianist in Minnesota, is gifted in his interpretation of this Coltrane material, which was sometimes as much about McCoy Tyner’s piano brilliance as it was about Coltrane’s. This show has sold out its previous appearances at kj’s hideaway. This is a wonderful chance to hear this material played by these musicians in the idyllic setting of Crooners’ main room.
