Branford Marsalis Quartet ‎– Performs Coltrane's Love Supreme Live In Amsterdam. For Marsalis Music’s second DVD release, label founder Branford Marsalis and his quartet have been captured in a complete performance of John Coltrane’s 1964 masterpiece A Love Supreme. This legendary suite, which tenor saxophonist Marsalis included on his label’s premier release, Footsteps of Our Fathers, was performed at Amsterdam’s Bimhuis during a European tour in March 2003. We felt that we were pretty much done with A Love Supreme when we went to Europe, but my manager wasn’t done with it, Marsalis recalls wryly.

In addition, Alice Coltrane, John Coltrane's late widow and the pianist in his last band, is seen in a historical 30-minute conversation with Marsalis. An audio-only disc of the Bimhuis performance is also included in the package. A Love Supreme is considered by many to be the ultimate expression of the classic John Coltrane Quartet, and remains Coltrane's most popular album

The John Coltrane Quartet performed their greatest work, 1964's A Love Supreme, only once on a stage. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of this seminal jazz recording, tenor saxophonist Branford Marsalis recreates that love on stage in Holland at the Bimhuis-a space beloved by musicians since 1973, since no food or drink is allowed to be sold in the room itself. It's all about the music," says Marsalis. And, oh, what music this is! It was 2003. Marsalis thought he was done with this suite after recording it in the studio on Footsteps of Our Fathers

The original A Love Supreme is a studio album recorded by John Coltrane's quartet in December 1964. It is generally considered to be among Coltrane's greatest works. The album was a groundbreaking suite that served as high-water mark of the prolific tenor saxophonist's career. Contemporary saxophonist Branford Marsalis paid homage to this album in 2004, by recording it live at the Bimhuis Jazz Club in Amsterdam recorded on march 30, 2003. Marsalis and his band learned the piece intimately and created their own very enjoyable approach to it. Track Listings

John Coltrane played his devotional suite in its entirety only once in public (a tortured rendering that had many VIPs scurrying for the exit). Marsalis’s quartet have toured it around the world and their love for this intense, inspirational piece is evident.

Notes

Recorded at 24 bit/96 kHz High Resolution Audio and filmed in High Definition Video at the Bimhuis Jazz Club in Amsterdam on March 30, 2003.

For Marsalis Music’s second DVD release, label founder Branford Marsalis and his quartet have been captured in a complete performance of John Coltrane’s 1964 masterpiece A Love Supreme. This legendary suite, which tenor saxophonist Marsalis included on his label’s premier release, Footsteps of Our Fathers, was performed at Amsterdam’s Bimhuis during a European tour in March 2003.

“We felt that we were pretty much done with A Love Supreme when we went to Europe, but my manager wasn’t done with it,” Marsalis recalls wryly. “After hearing us perform the suite at the Bottom Line, she insisted that we had to film it so she approached Pierre about the project and he agreed." Pierre Lamoureux, a filmmaker known for his expertise in musical subjects, directed the recent Emmy-winning PBS special “Only You in Concert” by Harry Connick, Jr. "Pierre cares about how his films sound as well as how they look,” Branford emphasizes, “and the combination of Pierre and the Bimhuis was too good to pass up.”

Branford is unsparing in his enthusiasm for the Amsterdam club, which has been a center for jazz in Europe since it opened in 1973. “I only played there once before, with Art Blakey in 1981, and I’ve wanted to bring my own band into the Bimhuis ever since,” he admits. “It’s simply one of the two or three best jazz clubs in the world, because the room is intimate and the focus is on presenting the music instead of selling food and drinks. There is a bar outside of the performance space, and people do go there to hang, but once they walk into the club itself, it’s all about the music.”

Marsalis’ acclaimed quartet - with pianist Joey Calderazzo, bassist Eric Revis and drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts - was all about the music as well, as they delivered a performance both musically and visually riveting. As a bonus to the live performance, all four members of the quartet, together with Branford’s fellow saxophonists Michael Brecker, Ned Goold, David Sánchez and Miguel Zenón, discuss the inspiration and the challenges presented by Coltrane’s composition. In addition, Alice Coltrane, John Coltrane’s widow and the pianist in his last band, is seen in a 30-minute conversation with Branford. An audio-only disc of the Bimhuis performance is also included, and is available only in the DVD package.
