The Trane Stopped at Awbury!

Willie Williams with the Philadelphia Homecoming Brigade Quintet

The Tranestop Resource Institute is to be enthusiastically commended for producing Philly's inaugural John Coltrane Jazz Festival, a tribute to the "Giant" of jazz and a celebration of his 80th birthday. It was a very successful community event with stellar performances and well attended, in spite of continuing atmospheric challenges. I'm certain that "all aboard" were glad to be there when this Trane arrived. They are keeping the culture alive and well!

THANK YOU TRANESTOP!

(and your many $pon$or$)

SUPPORT THE MUSIC!
