SOULTRANE: A John Coltrane Exhibit
In celebration of John Coltrane's September 23rd birthday, AJM is proud to present a new exhibition, on display through the end of October, 2019.
Charlie Parker was one of Coltrane's idols, and they played together occasionally in the late 1940s. Coltrane also worked with many jazz legends such as Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, and Thelonius Monk. Throughout his career, Coltrane created a distinctive sound defined by his ability to play several notes at once amid a continuous change of scales.
Featured objects in the exhibit include a letter written by Coltrane to Congressman John Conyers, and a telegram sent by Floyd B. McKissick, the National Director of CORE (Congress Of Racial Equality) to Naima Coltrane after the artist's death on July 17th, 1967.
