A Love Supreme: Josh Kemp’s Coltrane Project
A Collaboration with pianist Alex Hutton, exploring the lyrical and spiritual music of John Coltrane, including his masterpiece – the Love Supreme suite. Performances are accompanied with video projections inspired by the meaning and message of Coltrane’s music.
A Love Supreme is Coltrane’s masterpiece, a work of deep spiritual power, representing a struggle for purity, an expression of gratitude, and an acknowledgement that the musician’s talent comes from a higher source.
This performance by Josh Kemp’s Coltrane Project is the result of a deep study of the original material, yielding an authentic yet personal recreation of the Love Supreme suite. The full programme emphasises the lyrical and communicative music of John Coltrane and is accompanied by a video backdrop of images of Coltrane and including real-time scrolling of the words of the Coltrane’s prayer for the fourth movement ‘Psalm’ which provide the basis for the improvisation, and carry the meaning and message of the whole work.
