In this tribute to John Coltrane: Jakob Dinesen plays the tenor sax, with the John Dip Silas Trio – John Dip Silas (piano), Kasemsmai Wongchayasilpa (bass), and Pong Nakornchai (drums).
John William Coltrane was an American jazz saxophonist and composer, also known as “Trane”. Working in the bebop and hard bop idioms early in his career, Coltrane helped pioneer the use of modes and was later at the forefront of free jazz. He led at least fifty recording sessions, and appeared on many albums by other musicians, including trumpeter Miles Davis and pianist Thelonious Monk.
Over the course of his career, Coltrane’s music took on an increasingly spiritual dimension. Coltrane remains one of the most influential saxophonists in music history. He received many posthumous awards and recognitions, including canonization by the African Orthodox Church and a special Pulitzer Prize in 2007.
Jakob Dinesen is one of the most prominent and active musicians in Danish jazz – periodically almost hyperactive, horn always within reach, and always in demand. He has been characterized as an emotional and virtuosic musician and a powerful conveyor of the great tenor jazz tradition. His expression is both progressive and deeply rooted in tradition, with one leg comfortably resting in swing, bebop, and one in something more “here-and-now-modern”. The big difference is his open mind!.
He has a deep knowledge of jazz history, a rich sound and effortless instrumental technique. Combined with a balanced style and imagination, this makes for a musician so flexible, that he can easily find his own relaxed way into any musical setting – which makes him a perfect match for strings. He never loses his own identity regardless of his surroundings.
