Jazz at Lincoln Center presents

John Coltrane – A Love Supreme

featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and Wynton Marsalis

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.

Premieres June 10th at 7:30pm • On-Demand through June 16, 2021
