Marten Coltrane 3 at Axpona

We are being talked about after showing the mighty Coltrane 3 at Axpona last weekend.

Coltrane 3

really nice warm sound and huge soundstage

Jason Victor Serinus – Stereophile

dark rich color, superb focus, sledgehammer dynamics, and a very wide soundstage

Peter, Paul and Mary’s “Very Last Day” gave me goosebumps
