Listening to Coltrane Week 2017
I want to be a force for real good.
In other words, I know that there are bad forces,
forces that bring suffering to others and misery to the world,
but I want to be the opposite force. I want to be the force, which is truly
for good. – John Coltrane (1926-1967)
17 -21 July was Coltrane Week on Pan African Space Station.
From 18:00 – 20:00 every evening, we invited listeners to tune into the PASS stream for a selection of odes and ramblings to the father of spiritual jazz and beyond. Coltrane Week featured interviews, musical contributions and compositions from Trane and the friends he shared his life with, as well as live DJ tributes from guests in studio throughout the week.
Listen to offerings to Trane from Dala Flat, DJ Mighty, Boeta Gee, recorded LIVE at Chimurenga HQ. More via our Mixcloud.
