Every year around Easter I do my Jazz Lunatique show on WWOZ in New 
Orleans where I play both Coltrane versions of Ascension and then do 
both Rova versions.  Don "Big Moose" Jamison of WWOZ used to play 
Ascension every Easter and since his passing I feel it is my duty to 
continue this.  What beautiful powerful music to elevate and ecstaticize 
the soul!
