A church in San Francisco on Divisadero Street dedicated to St. John Coltrane and his work of spiritual passion, A Love Supreme. The jazz group Ohnedaruth leads services that always include the 35 minute opus.

The path to God can be walked, run, or played. Musicians in the pews jam in the middle of the service, caught up in a spiritual ecstasy, a speaking in tongues with horn. Communion with God through notes of a solo, through the beat of the drum and driving rhythm of standup bass leads followers to the church of John, where they can pray with their instruments or follow the music up to heaven with their ears.
