We Four, Javon Jackson and Jimmy Cobb Celebrate the Music of John Coltrane
We Four is a project spearheaded by tenor saxophonist Javon Jackson and NEA Jazz Master Jimmy Cobb that celebrates the music and spirit of John Coltrane. Coltrane created some of the most innovative and expressive music in jazz history - We Four is a vehicle to explore this classic repertoire. The ensemble will interpret tunes like Giant Steps, Mr. P.C., Naima, Central Park West, Like Sonny, Countdown as well as originals inspired by Coltrane's Great Quartet with McCoy Tyner and Elvin Jones. Javon Jackson launched his career as a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. He then went on to tour and recorded with Elvin Jones, Betty Carter, Cedar Walton, Ron Carter, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Curtis Fuller, Stanley Turrentine and many others. Drummer Jimmy Cobb is a direct link to the era We Four represents. He joined Coltrane in Miles Davis' Sextet to record Kind of Blue, appearing on nine of Miles Davis' recordings and six of Coltrane's. A young 87 years old he continues to record and perform with the best. His most recent album, 2014's The Original Mob is with Brad Mehldau and Peter Bernstein.
