TOUR 2019-2020

THE CAMPBELL BROTHERS

perform John Coltrane’s,

“A LOVE SUPREME”

 

The Campbell Brothers’

sacred steel gospel version

of John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme

was commissioned by

Lincoln Center Out of Doors

and Duke Performances at Duke University.

The piece premiered at

Lincoln Center in New York City

on August 8, 2014.

 

Fifty years ago

John Coltrane composed and recorded

his most spiritual composition.

Coltrane, whose father was a minister,

included a prayer in the liner notes,

and phrased his peroration

to those words.

 

The Campbell Brothers,

whose father is a bishop,

grew up in churches

where steel guitars replaced organs,

a style known as Sacred Steel.

Every Sunday they played

for church services,

where they were admonished

to “play the word.”

 

This Sacred Steel gospel tradition

has proved fertile ground for

A Love Supreme.

The Campbell Brothers approach

this major work

with a deep connection

to the spiritual journey

the composer undertook.

At its Lincoln Center premier,

the piece was greeted

by shouts of joy and

a wild standing ovation.
