g plays C – galati plays Coltrane.
This project was born upon request of Stefano Zenni, artistic director of the Met Jazz Festival in Prato, IT.
I was asked to dedicate a solo piano concert to John Coltrane.
Naturally I accepted this challenge willingly, first because I love his music but above all because it is a totally unique project in the whole world panorama.
The compositions I have chosen to arrange include many Coltrane originals like Naima, Lazy Bird, Moments’ Notice, as well as pieces composed by other musicians to whom he was very close as My Favorite Things, In a Sentimental Mood, Too Young To Go Steady.
