Rob Dixon and the Indianapolis Jazz Collective, including the great Steve Allee on piano, Cincy's Jim Anderson on bass and Steve Houghton on drums, convened at the Jazz Kitchen for their tribute to the great John Coltrane. As they have done in the past, the collective performed Coltrane's revered "A Love Supreme" straight through without stopping. The crowd at the Jazz Kitchen was mesmerized throughout as the band performed ""Acknowledgement", "Resolution", Pursuance" and "Psalm", the four tunes from the original album. In addition, they performed Coltrane's "Moment's Notice", "After the Rain" as well as Mongo Santamaria's 1959 composition "Afro Blue".
The original recording, often referred to as Coltrane's "masterpiece" included Coltrane on tenor and soprano saxophones, Jimmy Garrison on double bass, Elvin Jones on drums & percussions and the great McCoy Tyner on piano, Recorded in December of 1964 and released in January of 1965, A Love Supreme has been widely recognized as a work of deep spirituality for decades and it felt that way last night as well.
