Coltrane and Rollins: A Love Supreme and Freedom Suite
Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet with Wynton Marsalis
The JLCO Septet reintroduces listeners to two of the most profound pieces of music ever created. Universally hailed as a masterpiece, A Love Supreme is a moving, powerful and poignant suite of music and a musical embodiment of John Coltrane’s deep spirituality. Sonny Rollins' Freedom Suite is one of the first instrumental protest pieces that foreshadowed the civil rights movement of the 1960s
