The Campbell Brothers: John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme”

The Campbell Brothers: John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme”

January 29, 2022

In 2014, Lincoln Center and Duke Performances commissioned the Campbell Brothers to create a gospel celebration of John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme, to mark that seminal work’s fiftieth anniversary. The Campbell Brothers are some of the world’s foremost practitioners of the “Sacred Steel” tradition, a strain of African-American gospel in which the organ and the choir are cast aside in favor of an ensemble of wailing and preaching lap steel guitars. With countless reinterpretations of A Love Supreme already in existence—in every medium imaginable and by everyone from choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker to poet Michael S.Harper—some might be bold enough to ask, “Is there really anything left to say about A Love Supreme?” When it comes to the Campbell Brothers’ version, the question of what they can say about the music becomes irrelevant. But things get a lot more interesting when you ask, “What can the Campbell Brothers do with A Love Supreme?”
