The Department of Music presents the UMBC Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Matthew Belzer. The program will prominently feature the works from John Coltrane's iconic album A Love Supreme.
A Love Supreme is an extended work in 4 movements, originally for a jazz quartet. The UMBC Jazz Ensemble is drawing on the original recording as well as Wynton Marsalis's arrangement for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra as inspiration for their interpretation.
A quote from Coltrane which nicely sums up his goals:
“I want to be a force for real good. In other words. I know that there are bad forces, forces that bring suffering to others and misery to the world, but I want to be the opposite force. I want to be the force which is truly for good” — JOHN COLTRANE (1966 interview with Frank Kofsky)
Admission is free.
