Pioneer and saxophonist John William Coltrane was just 40 years old when he died — and yet, he managed to leave behind an incomparable legacy. He was even adopted as a saint and is actively worshipped at the Yardbird Temple turned Coltrane Church in California. Few are better suited to pay tribute to Coltrane’s iconic body of work than the musicians selected for the DSO’s Music of John Coltrane event. Poncho Sanchez who, for more than three decades, has married traditional, gritty jazz with Latin American and South American influences, will join revered saxophonist and Detroit-native James Carter in celebrating Coltrane’s contributions to jazz and music at large.

The Music of John Coltrane begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 18 at Orchestra Hall; 3711 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-576-5111; dso.org; Tickets are $19+.
