Considered to be the defining jazz recording of all time, John Coltrane and his equally innovative quartet (McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison, Elvin Jones) recorded the album A Love Supreme in 1964 on Impulse Records.
"John Coltrane’s A LOVE SUPREME took music to the outer edges, both spiritually and acoustically—it was quite literally far out in every way. But I don’t think even Trane envisioned the addition of electricity to the mix. Turns out it works. John Hanrahan’s Electric Love Supreme Project will quite simply stir up your brain cells, flood you with endorphins, and leave you shaken. There’s nothing quite like it."
- Dennis McNally, Grateful Dead Publicist
Marina Albero burst onto the Seattle jazz scene in September of 2014. Since that time she has energized the scene with her quartet, and in duo and solo piano performance. Her style reflects her musical journey that began with touring the world as a child with her musical family, to her teen years spent studying in Cuba, to her association with flamenco forms in Spain. The listener can hear a world of music in her playing, from jazz, to classical, to flamenco, and undeniably, the afro cuban rhythms that are so foundational in jazz music.
Hans Teuber, Musical Director of Teatro ZinZanni:
The son of professional musicians, Hans Teuber grew up South Carolina singing in his mother's church choir, playing in bands and orchestras, jazz and R&B groups. As a youngster he per-formed with Dizzy Gillespie, as well as local be-boppers, funksters and experimental artists. Teuber toured extensively with crooner/jazz pianist Buddy Greco. In 1988 he made his home in Seattle, where he has recorded and performed with Julian Priester, Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz (Zoney Mash), Robin Holcomb, Pearl Jam and many others. He has also toured Brazil and recorded several CD's with Jovino Santos Neto Quinteto. Teuber has recorded in NYC with Kendra Shank, Frank Kimbrough, Jeff Johnson, Victor Lewis, Joe Locke, Billy Mintz, Peck Allmond, and trumpeter Todd Horton's "Whatsa". He spent three years on the road and in the studio with songwriter Ani DiFranco, culminating with a Eu-ropean tour opening for Maceo Parker. Hans was an accompanist, floating sub and saxophone instructor at Cornish College for several years. He joined Teatro ZinZanni in 2006 and became Musical Director in 2012.
Keith Lowe has over 35 years of performing experience on both electric and acoustic bass. He studied classically for 15 years before moving on to jazz and rock where he has backed such artists as Fiona Apple, Bill Frisell, Scott Law, David Sylvian, Stone Gossard, Harold Budd, and Wayne Horvitz. He has a very diverse background, performing most any style of music including rock, jazz, country, classical, bluegrass, folk, electronic, etc. This wide ranging and comprehensive approach to music has resulted in a tuneful, solid, and eclectic style that has him in demand both as a performer and studio musician.
A veteran of the creatively fecund Chicago jazz scene, Santa Cruz-based drummer John Hanrahan has made a strong impression in the area with his quartet’s galvanizing performances of John Coltrane’s prayerful masterpiece A Love Supreme. He gets an early start celebrating the golden anniversary of an epochal musical year with “Sounds from ’67—Miles to McCoy, Jimi to The Beatles,” a program celebrating some of the recordings that defined a transitional era, as rock embraced psychedelia and jazz musicians explored new structures and forms.
