The Traneumentary: Joe Lovano

The great saxophonist Joe Lovano has been one of the leading forces in jazz for nearly three decades. Joe’s father, Tony, was also a mighty sax player in his own right and taught young Joe about John Coltrane and his recordings.

On the first of this Traneumentary double header, Joe shares his experience of discovering John Coltrane. And on the second episode, Joe comments on one of his all-time favorite Coltrane recordings “Moments Notice” from the classic album Blue Train.

Joe Lovano on John Coltrane. Excerpts included on this episode include: “Summertime,” “Syeeda’s Song Flute,” “Dahomey Dance,” “Liberia” and “Harmonique.”
