The second of three concerts created by Yoko Suzuki exploring the history of female jazz harpists and composers and the rarely heard contributions they made to the jazz scene. This month spotlights Alice Coltrane whose talents as a composer, singer, pianist, and harpist led her to create a distinctive style combining elements of gospel, classical, and jazz music.
This program kicks off with a presentation of Alice Coltrane’s life by Dr. Tammy L. Kernodle, professor of African American music, jazz, and gender at Miami University. Then Yoko and her fellow musicians take the stage to pay homage to the singular talents of Ms. Coltrane.
