After playing nearly 4 hours, the band finally sounded their last notes and the audience breathed a collective sigh. Lawrence, the conductor on this journey, punched the tickets of these jazz-lovin' Southlanders in Long Beach for a ride on the terrestrial "A Train," yet, by evening's end, the exhilarated passengers deplaned from the celestial Mothership in jazz heaven. New Yorkers can look forward to their own mystic journey aboard the "A Train" in October when Lawrence performs at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola as part of a John Coltrane celebration.
