HaffSteinMills Trio

Kellen Mills – bass guitar
Jonathon Haffner – alto sax
Joe Hertenstein – drums

“John [Coltrane] was like a visitor to this planet. He came in peace and he left in peace; but during his time here, he kept trying to reach new levels of awareness, of peace, of spirituality. That’s why I regard the music he played as spiritual music — John’s way of getting closer and closer to the Creator.
Albert Ayler”
