Denys Baptiste Quartet: The Late Trane
Denys Baptiste - tenor sax
Nikki Yeoh - piano
Rod Youngs - drums
Neil Charles - bass
With The Late Trane, British saxophonist and UK jazz giant, Denys Baptiste, reimagines and reworks ten carefully chosen compositions from John Coltrane’s late music (from 1963 - 1967).
The later works of John Coltrane, preserved in both studio and enigmatic live recordings, were some of the most emotional and spiritually-charged music of the 20th Century. Written at a time of tumultuous change in America and the world: the civil rights and anti-racism movement, the Vietnam war, the peace movement and space exploration inspired a great flow of creativity of which Coltrane was at the heart. As Denys explains: ‘John Coltrane continues to be one of my most important influences and his late period has always intrigued me and has stimulated my work over many years. To play this music, with these incredible musicians alongside me is hugely inspiring’.
Denys has brought together an extraordinary band to perform this music. They illustrate the parallel journey that musicians from London’s multi-cultural music scene have made in discovering, and finally making their own, the mythic, cultural work of John Coltrane, the master sax player.
