In this anniversary year, we are delighted to have Mr. Jackson not only give a brief talk about John Coltrane and the significance of this work, but also speak the poetry Coltrane wrote for the suite during the performance. Originally recorded and released in 1964, A Love Supreme is one of jazz’s most critically acclaimed recordings and considered John Coltrane’s masterpiece. It will be performed by Leonard Brown’s quintet “Joyful Noise” featuring Leonard Brown on reeds, Ron Mahdi on bass, George W. Russell, Jr.,on piano, Bobby Tynes on reeds, and Alvin Terry on drums.
