On March 7, 1963, John Coltrane made one of his most lush and poignant albums, it was one on which he shared center stage, not with another instrumentalist but unusually with a singer. The singer was 40-year-old Johnny Hartman whose debut recording was Songs from the Heart, recorded with a quintet for Bethlehem Records released in 1955. When they arrived at the studio they had no charts, no prior arrangements worked out, this recording of John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman was without a net, but then again all the musicians knew these songs by heart.

On this special evening vocalist Steve Maddock will recreate this classic album as as some romantic classics to celebrate Valentines Day.

With Cory Weeds – tenor saxophone, Miles Black – piano, Conrad Good – bass and Jesse Cahill – drums
