Rudy Gutierrez – Spirit Seeker: John Coltrane’s Musical Journey

Thanks to Rudy Gutierrez I have become aware of his art gracing the cover of the book, Spirit Seeker: John Coltrane’s Musical Journey

I have written about the Doc NYC film festival and Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary before on this blog.

What I did not know until this morning is that Rudy’s art is featured in animated form in the Coltrane documentary. I am eager to see this artistic interpretation in the film one day. I can’t get to the SVA Theatre in NYC on Thursday night, 11/17 but perhaps you, my readers can attend. If you’re into art , jazz, and Coltrane it will be a religious experience. The documentarian John Scheinfeld will be in attendance and might be speaking after the showing (just my perception).

Below is a spiritual rendition of John Coltrane by Rudy Gutierrez that appears in the documentary. Don’t you love the colors and the warm, healing feeling he communicates through his representation of Trane. 🙂 I can picture this art work hanging in the Saint John Coltrane Church in the Fillmore District in San Francisco, California.

A Love Supreme, Supreme, Supreme
