Join host Mike Wulfsohn next Monday, August 19 at 8pm for “Wulfie’s Wax Museum,” on the Monday Night Beat, as we take a one-week break from vinyl, to fully enjoy John Coltrane’s fascinating exploration into quartal harmony, and his recently found, absolute devotion to a higher power, in one of the most popular jazz albums ever recorded, “A Love Supreme.” We will listen to “A Love Supreme” in its entirety, with Trane leading what became known as his “Classic Quartet,” with pianist McCoy Tyner, Bassist Jimmy Garrison, and Elvin Jones on drums. The entire work is based upon two main themes, one of which appearing on the very first notes played, and the second theme being introduced at the end of the first movement, “Acknowledgement.”
There is a good reason why this album sold over half a million copies, and tonight we will listen to it in a new, and different perspective, while we listen for the 2 main themes throughout the piece. Don’t miss this historic, pioneering and engaging recording! Tune in next Monday, August 19th at 8pm for “Wulfie’s Wax Museum” on the next Monday Night Beat, on KUVO Jazz.
