Julian Anderson-Bowes and Justin Gray – Upright Bass

For two back-to-back nights, “Impulse” will celebrate and pay homage to John Coltrane, one of the most brilliant, innovative and influential musicians in the history of Jazz. The concerts will focus on exploring his late-period music, from the mid-to-late 1960's. The ensemble embraces Coltrane’s open approach to composition and group interaction, cultivated deeply in his iconic albums with the Impulse record label.

Throughout each of their careers, the “Impulse” ensemble members have drawn considerable influence from the music of John Coltrane. In these special performances, the group invites listeners to explore and appreciate this rarely performed repertoire. Please join us at Array Space and the Rex Hotel as we embark upon this journey together.
