Mike Mainieri: Vibraphone
Charlie Mariano: Alto Saxophone
Dieter Ilg: Double Bass

Mike joins saxophonist Charlie Mariano and bassist Dieter Ilg in a double-CD tribute to John Coltrane. Crescent was one of Charlie Mariano’s last recordings before his death in 2009.

On this 2-CD set, Mainieri not only covers the original compositions of John Coltrane, but also intertwines some of the noteworthy ‘standards’ that Coltrane recorded during his career.

Mainieri: “Just about every selection on this 2-CD set was a first take. Charlie’s energy and the essence of his soulful performance were an inspiration to me those two memorable days, which I cherish as a gift from an enlightened soul.”
