A Love Supreme

E.W. Wainwright, Fred Harris and Archbishop Franzo King in an extended rendition of A Love Supreme at St. John Coltrane African Orthodox Church in San Francisco. Wainwright sat in on drums to celebrate his 75th birthday with Harris, a collaborator for 20 years. During my brief remarks, I noted that Benjamin Franklin “Reb” Spikes made the saxophone essential to jazz in San Francisco as part of the So Diff’rent Jazz Orchestra at Purcell’s So Diff’rent. Bringing WURD’s Coast to Coast from Philadelphia to St. John Coltrane and other locations along the African American Freedom Trail Friday. Wainwright was founder of the iconic group The African Roots of Jazz in 1970.
