A first for Jazz FM and HJC, this format of evening will make its debut at London Jazz Festival week.

Jo Harrop talks about her love affair with the album: John Coltrane Quartet – Ballads

I fell in love with this vinyl – Ballads from the John Coltrane Quartet.

I love singing ballads and was blown away by a whole album just of tender torch songs – I played it over and over again.
Favourite track ‘Say It Over & Over Again’ (Frank Loesser and Jimmy McHugh).  This song does have words but I’ve only heard Kurt Elling sing it.

The quartet includes pianist McCoy Tyner who actually wrote one of my favourite love songs ‘You taught my heart to sing’ with Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums. Simple and beautiful.

I love it that a musician recorded a whole album of just ballads and was inspired to do the same.

To attend, simply book a ticket for the main live show.
