Easily one of the most important records ever made, John Coltrane's A Love Supreme was his pinnacle studio outing that at once compiled all of his innovations from his past, spoke of his current deep spirituality, and also gave a glimpse into the next two and a half years (sadly, those would be his last). Recorded at the end of 1964, Trane's classic quartet of Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Jimmy Garrison stepped into the studio and created one of… read more

    Masterpiece , but you guys forget "The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady" for me is the greatest album and then A Love Supreme can be the second only to Mingus masterpiece. The Avant Garde stroke of genius started with Mingus back in 1963 with the Sinner Lady then the rest came adter:1964 1965... Kind of Blue is just Modal, perfect but I like Avant better. That's my bet.

    50th Anniversary of John Coltrane - A Love Supreme was recorded on the 9th December 1964 in one epic session. A masterpiece and a spiritual experience.

    1964-12-09 - A Love Supreme... Who'd have thought fifty year ago we'd all be sittin' here drinking Château de Chasselas, listening to "A Love Supreme", eh?... From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: A Love Supreme is a studio album recorded by John Coltrane's quartet in December 1964, and released by Impulse! Records in February 1965. It is generally considered to be among Coltrane's greatest works, as it melded the hard bop sensibilities of his early career with the modal jazz and free jazz styles he adopted later. The quartet recorded the album in one session on December 9, 1964, at the Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. Coltrane's home in Dix Hills, Long Island, has been suggested as the site of inspiration for A Love Supreme... 4 stages of love according to John Coltrane: 01 - Acknowledgement, 02 - Resolution, 03 - Pursuance, 04 - Psalm... The album is as close to the ultimate (or should I say, supreme) perfection as it is humanely possible...

    "Elation. Elegance. Exaltation. All from God. Thank you God. Amen." You can hear these words in the end of the Psalm part. With his sax John said this.
