Don't miss the next concert in the TJBS Great Albums Concert Series, Blue Train, this coming Sunday, September 24, 6:00 and 8:00 pm. The performance will celebrate the classic John Coltrane recording, Blue Train. The featured artist will be saxophonist Michael Jenner. Also on hand will be trumpeter Jim Williamson and trombonist Roy Agee.

Blue Train was John Coltrane's first time as session leader on Blue Note and third session as a leader, recorded on 15 September 1957 for Blue Note at the Van Gelder Studio in Hackensack, New Jersey, although he was still under contract of Prestige (that is why the rear jacket has: "John Coltrane performs by courtesy of Prestige Records"). The sextet includes Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Kenny Drew, Paul Chambers and "Philly" Joe Jones.

Saxophonist Michael Jenner was raised in Pittsburgh and has been based in New Orleans for twenty years. Inspired by the swinging roots of Pittsburgh's jazz tradition, and the profound influence of New Orleans' street beats, he has cultivated a sophisticated and diverse sound grounded in the jazz and funk traditions, ranging from Art Blakey and Lennie Tristano to The Meters and Dr. John.

Tickets will be $15 for TJBS members and students, $20 for non-members. Tickets are on sale through Brown Paper Tickets at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3090087. Don't forget, Rudy's is an intimate jazz club with limited space. Reserve your tickets today to ensure a spot. Seats for both shows will be General Admission (no reserved seating).
