The BBC Concert Orchestra returns to the EFG London Jazz Festival with a full symphonic tribute to the life, work and genius of John Coltrane – arranged and curated by Carlos Simon.  

John Coltrane…need we say more? The creator of Blue Train, Giant Steps and A Love Supreme might just be the single greatest creative genius in modern jazz: a figure whose musical legacy is revered by many, and acknowledged by all.  

Now, his spirit rides again. Coltrane: Legacy for Orchestra is a new live concert experience re-framing some of his greatest works with original orchestrations by genre-defying American composer Carlos Simon. Endorsed by the Coltrane Estate and accompanied by exclusive and recently-exhibited personal photographs of John Coltrane, this performance at the EFG London Jazz Festival 2024 stars fast-rising trumpeter Giveton Gelin as well as the full BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Edwin Outwater

Together, they’ll take you on a musical journey through Coltrane’s work, from the 1950s through to the late sixties. 

For one night only, the legend lives.
