"High Point, N.C. –The Friends of John Coltrane, Inc. will be hosting the well-received play, Miles & Coltrane: Blue (.), on Saturday, May 9th, at the International Civil Rights Museum, 134 S. Elm St. Greensboro, NC.
Join us for this special presentation of Miles & Coltrane: Blue (.) that captures the galvanizing energy of the 1950′s, an element of time when American society was rapidly changing. During this era, jazz was the soundtrack to a new social revolution. And at the forefront of jazz music was trumpet blaring Miles Davis and skillful saxophonist John Coltrane, who partnered to make a wondrous residual slide in soundscapes that would unleash their names to be forever known as jazz legends. Award winning actors, musicians, and poets articulate this noteworthy shift in music history, taking you on a journey through the artists’ lives and the legacy they left behind.
Hors d' oeuvres will be available at 7pm with Miles & Coltrane: Blue (.) starting at 8pm.
Tickets are $40 per person and can be purchased online at www.friendsofjohncoltrane.com, through PayPal. Tickets are also available at the International Civil Rights Museum in Greensboro.
Proceeds benefit the 5th Annual John Coltrane International Jazz & Blues Festival being held on Labor Day weekend, 2015, at Oak Hollow Festival Park.
The mission of The Friends of John Coltrane is to preserve and celebrate the life and music of John Coltrane and to enrich the lives of others through the introduction of jazz and other musical genres."
