One of if not the greatest record to emerge from John Coltrane’s sprawling discography, My Favourite Things is unlike anything else the great soprano wrote.
Containing no original compositions, instead it reworked four pop standards in the modal jazz style that was slowly taking over from his early bebop stylings.
Coltrane’s interpretation of the title track, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic from The Sound of Music, has been studied and pored over by musicians and critics alike since its genesis in 61.
ONMO, fronted by Jean de Talhouët, will honour the legendary album with a bespoke 90 minute show that will also feature a number of classic Wayne Shorter standards thrown in.
