Featuring the music of Teodross Avery
Dr. Teodross Avery played SF Jazz with his quartet in 2017, one year before the same group recorded 'After the Rain : A Night for Coltrane' live at The Sound Room in Oakland, CA. The album, just out on Tompkins Square featuring liner notes by Ben Ratliff, has received international acclaim. The title track is the #1 most listened-to track on All About Jazz Year-to-Date. "The album conveys a feeling of urgent communion and soulful expedition" -Nate Chinen, WBGO "Expansive takes on classics such as "Africa" and "Pursuance" while beautifully sounding most like himself" -Chris Barton, LA Times “It’s a privilege to hear someone dig so deep into Coltrane” –All About Jazz (4.5/5 stars) “The energy and ambience is that of a smoky early ’60s night at the Village Vanguard” – MOJO (4/5 stars) “The album pays fitting tribute to a giant” –Downbeat “The most remarkable aspect of Avery’s tribute to Coltrane is just how present, alive and deeply personal it feels” –All Music (4/5 stars)
