JLP Event in Winston-Salem Tonight, near Coltrane Turf


HERE is a link to the Winston-Salem Journal story with information on the event.  The Ron Free Trio will play an initial set and the second set opens into a jam session.  Could be hot.  There are a lot of good players in the Triad (Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point for those non-locals).  Hopefully they’ll come out tonight.  It’s at the Community Arts Cafe.

I’m impressed and inspired by the passion and diligence exhibited by Monica Melton of the Piedmont Jazz Alliance and her associates in the lead-up to this event.

It’s poignant to have this event 15 miles from where John Coltrane grew up and graduated from high school.  Here’s a post I wrote about tracing Coltrane’s footsteps there recently
