The Spirit of Trane Tour: Gilad Atzmon & the Orient House Ensemble


A formidable improvisational array… a local jazz giant steadily drawing himself up to his full height...” – John Fordham, The Guardian

“…Atzmon is an astonishing musician.” – John Lewis, Metro

Atzmon is surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz...” The Times

Atzmon is a loose cannon: a larger than life figure with an almost overpowering musical personality… it’s as perfect a jazz marriage as you could wish for” – Phil Jonson, Independent on Sunday

Atzmon sends his soprano sax and clarinet soaring over complex rhythms from all points of the globe with a poetry that never forfeits control.”- Nina Caplan, Metro

His flow of ideas and coherent marshalling of them makes for solos that are as exhilarating as they are impassioned fantastiK” – The Herald Sunday Tribune


Marking fifty years without John Coltrane, Gilad Atzmon & The Orient House Ensemble attempt to reflect upon the beauty of the man’s music. John Coltrane was the most influential tenor saxophonist in jazz history. Whether it is his patented sheets of sound, his rapid-fire improvisations, the advanced harmonic progressions, the sonic impact of the best jazz quartet ever or his lush interpretations of the most beautiful ballads, no aspiring music lover can afford to neglect the music of Trane. But Coltrane is far greater than the sum of his outstanding musical achievements. He was a voice of a generation, an artistic revolutionary spirit, a man who transformed anger into love and plight into a humanist message. Coltrane is for us jazz at its best: an authentic creative wave of constant transformation and innovation. Trane is for us, first and foremost, a spirit.
