On the 50th anniversary of one of the most seminal jazz recordings ever made, The 'Coltrane Dedication' will be playing the complete 'A Love Supreme' suite. Having performed the piece earlier in the year at Cafe Jazz, Cardiff, the immense power of the composition and honest searching intent of the music, called for another restatement, or another journey from the quintet.

Please note: The suite will be played as a continuous piece without interval so the perfomance will be approximately 90 minutes. Caractacus Downes and Lyndon Owen (Saxophones), Dave Jones (Piano), Ashley John Long (Bass), Ian Poole (Drums)
