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: Piano 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.

Darians repertoire includes a wide range of styles and genres from contemporary to traditional.

Darian has the pleasure to perform with: The Rerun Band, Spyn Reset, Mycle Wastman Band, Darrius Willrich Band, Allen Stone Band, Tim Kennedy Quintet, Dave Abramson Trio, as well as Marmalade and Spellbinder with Santana drummer Mike Shrieve.
John Hanrahan: 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. The J Hanrahan Quartet performed A Love Supreme for the 50th anniversary of the iconic recording at The Monterey Jazz Festival in 2014.
