SoundSphere present A Love Supreme
By way of a change and to celebrate the many Festivals of Light at this time of the year, Live from Worktown bring you a reworking of John Coltrane's 'A Love Supreme', one of the best selling jazz albums of all time, which was reworked by John MacLaughlin and Carlos Santana as 'Love, Devotion, Surrender' in the 1970s. Where Miles Davies turned to Africa for inspiration, Coltrane turned to India, to produce this seminal work.
Paul Bibby of SoundSphere says, 'when Dave Morgan asked us if SoundSphere would like to play at one of Live From Worktown’s jazz nights, I thought mmm, we normally play electronic/dance/rock gigs, but if we chilled it down a little it could really work nicely. Then Dave asked me if we could base our first set around John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme and our second set around the music of Ravi Shankar, I thought mmm not an easy one this.I programmed the drums for the Coltrane set with the same attention to detail as a good jazz drummer would have, using a vintage 60’s kit. The bass was done using a upright double bass, the keyboards on the night will be mainly Hammond organ sounds and string synths. The Shankar set was put together using a sitar program. I used electric bass on that as well, and tabla and various other percussion programmes. The Fripp/Hendrix sounds that I usually use on guitar will be backed right off on the night to an appropriate jazz tone with guitarscapes used as well. There will be synth washes fading in and out. We hope the audience enjoys the set as much as we have enjoyed putting it together.
