Watch Joe Lovano: The Spiritual Side of Coltrane

Watch Joe Lovano: The Spiritual Side of Coltrane

Jazz at Lincoln Center

It's been a little over 50 years since John Coltrane released his magnum opus, A Love Supreme, the musical declaration of God’s presence in his life and music. The four-part suite is regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time and is a masterpiece of improvisation. Coltrane’s ceaseless innovations, and the musical realizations of his spiritual discoveries remain a universal source of inspiration to most every living jazz musician. Tenor titan Joe Lovano grew up listening to Coltrane and has found lifelong inspiration and involvement in this unparalleled music. As we approach the musical giant’s 90th birthday, Lovano pays homage to the spiritual side of one of his earliest inspirations, alongside an all-star band of Brian Blade, Geri Allen (5/14 only), Tom Harrell, Steve Kuhn (5/13 only), Andrew Cyrille, longtime Coltrane colleague Reggie Workman, and special guest saxophonist Ravi Coltrane, himself a GRAMMY® Award-nominated creative force.
