North Carolina Blue Notes: John Coltrane
This celebrated son of North Carolina hails from Hamlet. But the music he made has been heard far and wide.
Wilmington NC – North Carolina Blue Notes features biographies and music of fifteen A-List Jazz and Blues artists who called North Carolina home. The program is produced for WHQR by music journalist Roberta Penn, and hosted by jazz artist and educator Dr. Maurice Martinez.
John Coltrane is the kind of artist from which legends arise. This is not your parent's jazz. This is music discovered by every new generation as if it were newly minted.
North Carolina Blue Notes is a production of WHQR public radio, with support from the North Carolina Arts Council, and the North Carolina Humanities Council.
