Jazz in the Church
From George Lewis’s Jazz at Vespers to John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme (which is best described as a prayerful psalm), jazz and the Christian faith have a long and rich history of beautiful interaction. Jazz is grounded in the spirituality of the American south and finds expressions in clubs and concerts and churches across the world today.

It’s poetry. It’s soul. It’s worship.
