San Francisco is lucky enough to have the St. John Coltrane African Orthodox Church, where, every Sunday, devotees of Coltrane’s probing form of spiritual jazz gather to honor his music and spirit. Mill Valley, however, gets a little slice of Coltrane this week with Chicago’s J. Hanrahan Quartet
performing the landmark album A Love Supreme
in its entirety. Now together for over 20 years, Hanrahan’s quartet knows the album better than a saxophonist knows his spit valve; a second set promises Coltrane standards, while a third set is the audience’s choice. Sounds like a sermon from the mount, if you ask me; be there on Sunday, Jan. 12, at Sweetwater Music Hall. 19 Corte Madera Ave., Mill Valley. 7pm. $12—$14. 415.388.1100.
