John Coltrane performed and recorded with numerous saxophonists from different time periods over the years, many of whom served as a stylistic influence Including: Jimmy Heath, Cannonball Adderley, Eric Dolphy, Sonny Rollins, Pharaoh Sanders, Archie Shepp, Johnny Hodges, Hank Mobley, Jackie McLean, Gigi Gryce, Frank Wess, and Gene Ammons, among others. Michael Brecker, Joe Lovano and Dave Liebman formed the Saxophone Summit in 1999 to explore the various styles of John Coltrane and began recording as a collective in 2004 with Gathering of Spirits. When Brecker passed in 2007, Ravi Coltrane joined the group and they subsequently recorded Sephardic Light and most recently Visitation. Greg Osby recently replaced Ravi and the Collective continues to be seen and heard when schedules permit. The Saxophone Summit Supreme, a For Portland Only experience will bring together three contemporaries including two-time Grammy® Award nominee Jimmy Greene, JD Allen and Devin Phillips backed by the illustrious Orrin Evans Trio. Their choice of material will run the gamut of Coltrane’s songbook and the colleagues that he collaborated With.
