Rowland Sutherland - Compostions / Press

“Jazz breaking news: John Coltrane’s A Love Supreme re-envisioned for the Summer Solstice Flautist Rowland Sutherland’s inspired vision... Sutherland’s newly composed parts merged seamlessly with Coltrane’s four part work, introducing contemporary soundscapes and ascending lines that gave the flute, sax and bass clarinet top lines ample space to articulate the themes and develop soaring harmonies from this remarkable sound palette, proving just how missed Williamson and Sutherland have been from the contemporary scene. … the audience rapidly found themselves in the presence of a very special, deeply spiritual performance.”

Jon Newey - Jazzwise Magazine

"Based on the glorious Sacred Music, Sacred Spaces concert, a re-envisioning of John Coltrane's A Love Supreme held at The Chapel, Kings College London, 21.6.12 Summer Solstice, which saw the premiere of my new composition: Enlightenment (In the Spirit of A Love Supreme by John Coltrane): …there have been surprisingly few attempts to really explore and experiment with Coltrane's inspired vision in its totality… Tonight's performance is to be one of the first to really attempt that. ...And as the first powerful wave of the full ensemble rises up to disturb the calm of this most peaceful setting, the respect for Coltrane's original work is clearly matched by the same kind of inquisitive search he pursued. …newly composed parts from Sutherland combine with the original themes to stunning effect. "

"...a flautist with one of the nicest sounds in the business..."
