On September 21st, 2019, the Philadelphia Jazz Project and it's partners will present another celebration of one of America's greatest artists and a neighbor to many Philadelphians: John Coltrane. One of the most important artists of the 20th century was our neighbor. His name was John William Coltrane. He walked among us. He lived among us. He was not born here, but he became a man and a professional musician here. His birthday is September 23rd, 1926. We celebrate him with 10 hours of FREE music, a film screening and other activities on Saturday, September 21st, 2019 in Fairmount Park.
