Join us for a special night celebrating the landmark recording of John Coltrane with the Indianapolis Jazz Collective led by Rob Dixon (saxophone) and joined by Steve Allee (piano), Steve Houghton (drums), Jim Anderson of Cincinnati (bass), Ernest Stuart of Philadelphia (trombone).
John Coltrane recorded A Love Supreme in December of 1964 and released it the following year. He presented it as a spiritual declaration that his musical devotion was now intertwined with his faith in God. In many ways, the album mirrors Coltrane's spiritual quest that grew out of his personal troubles, including a long struggle with drug and alcohol addiction.
