Rova Saxophone Quartet
Electric Ascension at the Guelph Jazz Festival
John Coltrane's Ascension was called, “…the most powerful human sound ever recorded" in Down Beat Magazine in 1965, and "the most vexatious work in jazz history" by jazz critic Gary Giddins. These contradictory claims indicate just how controversial this music was at the time Coltrane recorded it in 1965. Ascension in fact still causes arguments; the ideas behind the music are still alive and making waves. All the more reason to rejoice in Electric Ascension, reincarnated for the 21st century in live performance by the large, fluctuating ensemble "Orkestrova".
