This event is sold out!

One of jazz’s most critically acclaimed recordings, A Love Supreme has come to be viewed as one of the greatest albums of all time, a deeply spiritual work, and John Coltrane’s masterpiece. Hear what jazz critic Nick Dedina called “an epic aural poem to man’s place in God’s plan.” This concert is part of the Sounds of Faith series, examining the religious roots of American musical traditions.
