Event Description

In the final Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis concert of the season, the JLCO will perform a big-band rendition of John Coltrane’s immortal album, A Love Supreme, followed by a number of other Coltrane classics.

Directed by saxophonist Sherman Irby with special guest saxophonist and vocalist Camille Thurman, the band will re-introduce listeners to one of the most powerful pieces of music ever created. Universally hailed as a masterpiece upon its release in 1965, A Love Supreme is a perfectly paced suite of music and a musical embodiment of Coltrane’s complex spirituality.

Beyond this most-famous example, Coltrane’s songbook is a rich and diverse body of work. The band will reinterpret a number of his timeless pieces, with an emphasis on the concept of “freedom,” for this rare all-Coltrane JLCO performance.
