The Church of John Coltrane San-francisco, California, United-states

A devotional jam session built on the spiritual awakening & music of John Coltrane's Love Supreme album. Cool.

You can find anything in San Francisco.  One thing you need to go and find is the Church of John Coltrane –  An African American congregation built around the spiritual awakening of John Coltrane and his subsequent album, Love Supreme.

This is not a big church like Glide or the like, it is small, it is a serious thing, and it is a seriously awesome way to go to church on a Sunday.  You will see members with their saxophones in the congregation playing along with the band.  It is a spiritual jam session like no other.  Yes, it is a tight, small congregation but they are welcoming and happy to have you there to see what they are about.  Now the service is 5 hours long.  You do not have to stay for the whole thing.  Just be respectful when you arrive and leave- because even though it is a full-on jazz throw down, it is still their church.

There is an awesome video dedicated to the celebration of the 5oth anniversary of the album.
