Remembering Coltrane-@ The Historic Mims House!

September 23, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


“My music is the spiritual expression of what I am – my faith, my knowledge, my being … When you begin to see the possibilities of music, you desire to do something really good for people, to help humanity free itself from its hangups … I want to speak to their souls. ∞ ”   John Coltrane

The Eugene/Springfield NAACP is opening the doors of the Mims house for a benefit on the 93rd Birthday of the Heavy Weight Champion of the Tenor Saxophone; John W. Coltrane!

Master educator and drummer Kenny Reed will join Branch President Eric Richardson on Bass and Local Saxophonist Benjamin Cradell for an evening of reflection on and a short set of Coltrane’s Music.
