The Church of Saint Coltrane – a short film on jazz as religion

pageexpired:

‘The worship of God is what we encourage, and we’re using the music of John Coltrane.’So says Bishop Franzo King, who with his wife, the Reverend Mother Marina King, founded the Saint John Coltrane African Orthodox Church in San Francisco. Since its creation in 1971, it has evolved into the Saint John Will-I-Am Coltrane Church.

The vibe is a rapturous out-of-your-head-ness, where instead of the choir and the hymn book there is the sinuous, transcendent music of the jazz-saint, John Coltrane. 

In their magnificent and rarely seen film, the directors Jeff Swimmer and Gayle Gilman document life at the church, where music, in the words of the bishop, is for the ‘effectual transference of the Holy Spirit’, lighting the way towards a higher state of consciousness.
