Remembering John Coltrane @ Black Box, Belfast


The latest outing from the ever-tasteful folks at Solid Choice Industries, Belfast’s Black Box will host a free celebration of the music of John Coltrane on Sunday, July 17. Marking the 49th anniversary of the legendary jazz saxophonist and composer’s passing, the night will explore the wide arc of Coltrane’s own work and the music of his contemporaries that he inspired. Including a screening of The World According to John Coltrane (a 1990 documentary produced in association with his esteemed widow, Alice) this is an unmissable proposition for diehard fans, the well-acquainted and newcomers alike. Doors are at 7pm.
