Urban Bush Women: Walking with ’Trane
"Zollar and her troupe plumb the structure of bebop and modal music in 'Trane's saxophone solos."
--The Village Voice
Urban Bush Women return to Wesleyan with the Connecticut premiere of Walking with 'Trane (2015), an ethereal investigation conjuring the essence of John Coltrane, inspired by the musical life and spiritual journey of the famed jazz saxophonist. Choreographed by founder and Artistic Director Jawole Willa Jo Zollar and Associate Artistic Director Samantha Speis, and Dramaturg Talvin Wilks in collaboration with the company, the work is set to music by composers George Caldwell and Philip White and inspired by Mr. Coltrane’s "A Love Supreme" and other works.
