EXCERPT FROM CONCERT REVIEW
Turtle Island Quartet: A Tribute to John Coltrane
NC State University and Raleigh Chamber Music Guild
By Karen E. Moorman
January 28, 2012 – Raleigh, NC:
The first half of the concert was a colorful set that ranged from Latin Jazz master Paquito D’Rivera’s “Wapango” to TIQ’s versions of Coltrane’s arrangement of Rogers’ “My Favorite Things” and Jimi Hendrix’s version of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower.” The works on the second half are recorded on their CD A Love Supreme. Together, we heard the musical context in which Coltrane’s suite of that name can be situated. And all the works performed bore the stamp of this marvelous quartet.
