A Love Supreme: The Legacy of John Coltrane

Saturday, October 1, 8:00 p.m.

 

Given the proper conditions, a work of art can transcend both genre and era, claiming its rightful place in the catalog of human expression that justifies the very existence of mankind. Such is the case of John Coltrane’s jazz epiphany, A Love Supreme. Recorded four decades ago at a time when the country was deeply troubled by issues of race and war, Coltrane’s music was a personal statement of redemption and salvation that struck a chord in the hearts of millions, becoming one of the most enduring jazz recordings of all time.

In exploring John Coltrane’s musical legacy, the Grammy Award-winning Turtle Island Quartet continues its own tradition of employing the string quartet form to shed new light on the timeless joy and beauty contained in the greatest music of the American jazz masters.

“…a sterling example of first-rate jazz music-making, whatever the instrumentation.”
