"A Love Supreme" with the CJO

July 17, 2021

I’d like to share some rare concert footage of an original orchestration of John Coltrane’s masterpiece “A Love Supreme” written for me by Jim McNeely for the Frankfurt Jazz Orchestra, in commemoration of its 50th year celebration in 2014. This performance is of a concert with the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra recorded live at BOP STOP at The Music Settlement there in my hometown in 2019. I’m very proud of my collaboration with Jim McNeely and my relationship with the CJO. Enjoy the music and hope you feel the spiritual outpouring of this great ensemble. This offering is in Celebration of the life and music of John Coltrane on this 54th anniversary of his untimely passing on July 17, 1967.
