John Bush grew up with a solid musical background during the mid-1950’s and 60’s in Little Rock during a time when the city produced more world-class jazz greats than can be named here. John then moved west to study, live, and work both in the San Francisco Bay Area and Seattle. From the mid-1960’s through the 1980’s those cities had clubs and thriving jazz communities where a multitude of both local and visiting jazz musicians provided abundant opportunities for session playing. The opportunity to “hang out” and to sit-in with the Masters was a life’s blessing for John.
The John Bush Quintet will be playing a tribute to John Coltrane’s unique treatment of jazz standards.
