Every two months, the Nocturne hospitality team produces an all new five-course tasting menu that seeks to express the aesthetics of iconic albums through flavor, texture, and emotion. In addition to celebrating the release of the new menu alongside the music live, the night includes interactive chats and course explanations by the musical guests, Chef Greg Weadick, Nocturne co-owner Nicole Mattson and co-owner/sommelier Scott Mattson. For our 16th menu, we have selected the iconic and genre-altering record Giant Steps, by John Coltrane.
Giant Steps was John Coltrane's debut recording on the Atlantic label - put together over just a few sessions in 1959. All seven pieces issued on the original release are original Coltrane compositions that serve as vehicles for Coltrane's brilliant and intense tenor solos.
Performing the works live will be the John Gunther Quartet: Eric Gunnison - piano, Ken Walker - bass, Paul Romaine - drums.
