    Posted on November 23rd, 2015 in

    John Coltrane’s seminal album-long suite A Love Supreme is one of the saxophone virtuoso’s most fitting work for tribute, but also perhaps his most difficult to interpret.

    Posted on September 16th, 2006 in Review | 4

    Jazz at Lincoln Center began its new season on Thursday with the first of three nights devoted to the music of John Coltrane. The occasion doubled as an early celebration of what would have been Coltrane’s 80th birthday (Sept. 23) — cake was served during intermission — and an opening salvo for the organization’s third year of programming in Frederick P. Rose Hall at Columbus Circle. It was a success on both counts.

  • Coltrane 101: Echoes of a Giant

    Posted on September 8th, 2006 in Profiles & Interviews

    JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER’S more ambitious concerts, while playing to an audience impressed by flash and smoothness, never completely lose their pedantic side; they’re always functioning in part as lessons. But sometimes that doesn’t sound so appealing. The cost of living is rising faster than salaries, and now even pleasure is work? And whose jazz history is this, anyway?

  • Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra Featuring Wynton Marsalis: A Love Supreme (2005)

    Posted on January 7th, 2005 in Review

    In the last year there’s been a resurgence of interest in John Coltrane’s epochal A Love Supreme. First saxophonist Branford Marsalis’ quartet released a live DVD with an incendiary version of the suite, demonstrating with the same instrumentation how an ensemble could be reverent without being imitative, capturing the essence of the piece without sounding like a weak copy.   Keep reading »
