John Coltrane Special

In what would have been John Coltrane's 90th birthday year, Soweto Kinch presents a Coltrane special. From Surrey University's "Retrospect and Prospect" conference, Gary Crosby's quartet with Denys Baptiste re-explore "A Love Supreme". Conference participants bring their own views on Coltrane to the show, and we hear a report from last month's Toronto Film Festival where a new Coltrane documentary had its international premiere. Plus Al Ryan reviews some previously unissued Coltrane performances and talks to pianist McCoy Tyner.
