Reuben Bradley: “The Arranged Spontaneous Spiritual Music of John Coltrane”

In this talk I will analyse and deconstruct his seminal work, ‘A Love Supreme’, examining the pathways that led Coltrane to compose this masterpiece, and delving into the meanings contained in the music. 

Musical examples will be the focus, and there will be time at the end for some questions and a general discussion.

The River City Jazzmen

The River City Jazzmen was formed by some of Christchurch's leading jazz musicians some years ago to reproduce the exciting sounds of classic Dixieland and 'Trad' bands of the UK and USA - from Armstrong and Beiderbecke to Ball, Barber and Bilk.


They bring a love of the 'authentic', and now have an  impressive following not only in Canterbury, but also throughout New Zealand.
