The Mattson 2 ft. Calvin Keys

  • SFJAZZ Miner Auditorium 201 Franklin St San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

Tickets ($25 - $45)

The identical twin duo of Jared and Jonathan Mattson re-imagine John Coltrane’s seminal 1964 masterwork, A Love Supreme, approached with their signature mix of looped surf-meets-bebop guitars and tribal jazz drumming that JazzTimes says “manages to hold Coltrane’s revered album in the highest esteem while absolutely shredding it to pieces.”

Legendary Bay Area-based soul jazz guitar great Calvin Keys joins them for a world premiere collaboration in the second set. Keys’s career has included extended partnerships with Ray Charles, Ahmad Jamal, John Handy, Bobby Hutcherson, and Pharoah Sanders.

Coltrane’s signature album from 1965 was a tribute to God; Mattson 2’s version is an homage to ‘A Love Supreme’, but one that shows its respect while demonstrating how much more can be done with it—or to it.
