Along with long time JCMC core members Bill Pierce (reeds/woodwinds), Carl Atkins (reeds/woodwinds), Stan Strickland (reeds/woodwinds), John Lockwood (acoustic bass) and Tim Ingles (electric bass), this year’s concert will feature the first time appearances of pianist Consuelo Candelaria-Barry and guitarist/composer Bill Banfield, who also serves as Head of Africana Studies at Berklee College of Music. The 35th anniversary Ensemble also includes JCMC co-founder and co-producer Leonard Brown (reeds/woodwinds), as well as Ricardo Monzon (percussion), JCMC co-producer Emmett G. Price III (piano/keyboards), and special guest Terri Lyne Carrington on drums.
The 2012 Ensemble will perform a repertoire of all Coltrane compositions, including “Moment’s Notice,” “Central Park West, “ “Impressions”, “After the Rain,” The Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost,” and a ‘Trane blues medley.
