The Nightside with Andy O'

Trane Tracks on the Nightside with Andy O'

Sep 20, 2018

Join us on The Nightside with host Andy O' on Sunday, September 23 from 8 to 10 pm as we celebrate John Coltrane's birthday! "Trane Tracks" celebrates Coltrane's poetry and song.

John was born in Hamlet North Carolina on September 23, 1926. He would go on to become one of the most influential and beloved figures of the Jazz world. Much poetry has been written about Trane and his own musical output was prodigious.

Tune in for poetry and all that Jazz on Trane Tracks!

"Only a Dad, but he gives his all
To smooth the way for his children small
Doing, with courage stern and grim,
The seeds that his father did for him.
This is the line that for him I pen,
Only a dad, But the best of men."
written by Edgar Albert Guest

In celebration of Fathers Day, The Nightside with Andy O' presents "Songs for the Fathers - Poetry and Jazz in the Family," including Nat Cole and Natalie Cole's "Unforgettable" duet, as well as Dave Brubeck and sons, Ellis Marsalis and sons, and many more.
