Trailblazing UK jazz renegade and saxophonist Sean Khan plays his first headline show at The Jazz Cafe to launch his scintillating new album Supreme Love: a Journey Through Coltrane on the iconic label BBE Music, which itself celebrates 25 years of pioneering sounds from the UK underground.
Featuring Cinematic Orchestra frontwoman Heidi Vogel on vocals and the input of two old friends, Kaidi Tatham and Daz I Kue, who each contribute a future-minded yet reverential sense of originality to the music, this will be a meeting of UK minds from across the jazz-influenced spectrum.
“Who is John Coltrane for me?” asks Khan. “He is man, legend, myth, storyteller, sage and atmosphere. My road and journey has been a rocky one, and like most on this journey, I have carved a path full of mistakes and triumphs. However, throughout my life Coltrane’s music has been a constant.”
Weaving together disparate strands of the UK music scene (jazz, dance, broken beat and electronic) together onto one record, Supreme Love is presented in three parts: autobiography, homage and encyclopaedia.
