Sunday, November 09, 2008

A Love Supreme is a suite conceived and composed in 1964 by saxophonist John Coltrane, one of the great visionaries and virtuosos of jazz. In this piece he transcended traditions, categories, and expectations by exploring the spiritual and sacred possibilities of his music.

David Garland's Sacred Sunday feature on Evening Music offers listeners a wide range of traditional and personal sacred music, and tonight features John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" in its entirety.
