Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A string quartet rendering of "A Love Supreme"? Even as John Coltrane's beloved work gets revived in various formats--Branford Marsalis performed and recorded with his quartet, Wynton Marsalis with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and singer Kurt Elling set a section of it to words--it may seem a stretch as a classical crossover. But unlike the Kronos Quartet, which came a cropper with its unswinging treatments of Bill Evans and Thelonious Monk, the Turtle Island Quartet is steeped in a jazz sensibility. While the enveloping spiritual intensity of "A Love Supreme" may elude it, the San Francisco-based group grabs the listener with its dark undertones, probing lines, rough hewn textures and airy counter melodies. Of the other Coltrane classics included on the CD, the ballad "Naima" stands out with its gorgeous blend of tones and colors and "Countdown" is given a brisk, percussive workout. Jazz fans will find new pathways into "A Love Supreme" while the classical set will find a gateway to one of jazz's enduring achievements. --Lloyd Sachs

Review

"'A Love Supreme: The Legacy of John Coltrane,' was a sterling example of first-rate jazz music-making, whatever the instrumentation... Although the piece [`A Love Supreme'] has been reinterpreted many ways since it was recorded in the '60s (including `A Guitar Supreme' by Larry Coryell, Mike Stern and others, and a CD/DVD version by Branford Marsalis), the Turtle Islanders' take is unique. Balakrishnan's thoughtful arrangement recalled passages from Coltrane's original solos while creating lush textures and whirlwind rhythms underscoring both the musical and the spiritual complexities of the original composition." -- Los Angeles Times, May 2007

"A Love Supreme: The Legacy of John Coltrane is the genuine thing...these conservatory-trained musicians are merging nothing; rather, they take their violins and cello and plunge deep into the stream of jazz and master one of its greatest works." -- LA Weekly, May 2007

"There is something nearly ecstatic in Turtle Island's handling of works written by or in tribute to the jazz sax colossus John Coltrane, all captured on the newest disc `A Love Supreme'--the Legacy of John Coltrane. These performances more than meet the group's standards for blending the fact or impression of improvisation with meticulously crafted parts." -- Strings, March 2007

"Wonderfully arranged and performed, we are given a new perspective on the music of Coltrane by having it put in the warm and intimate context of a classical string quartet." -- Jazz Police.com, March 2007

"His [John Coltrane's] spirit is evoked, with a loping then swirling version of `Naima' that brings out all the poignancy and inherent beauty of the piece." -- Downbeat, March 2007
