A Love Supreme: The Music of John Coltrane - "John Coltrane’s jazz epiphany, A Love Supreme, was 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 the musical legacy of North Carolina native John Coltrane, the two‐time Grammy Award winning Turtle Island Quartet continues its 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."
Pre-show discussion with a member of the Turtle Island Quartet, 7pm, Walnut Room.
