This four-part suite is where musical innovation, fiery technical facility, and sheer but humble ambition coalesce into a perfect album. While the magnitude and depth of Coltrane’s vision here is a crucial part of his legend, A Love Supreme is also a powerful display of his chemistry with drummer Elvin Jones, pianist McCoy Tyner, and bassist Jimmy Garrison. From the iconic opening bass riff of “Acknowledgement” to the sustained swirl of the majestic “Psalm,” the trio is the booster rocket for the saxophonist’s liftoff to the heavens.
There are better mixes of this brilliant album
Sadly this ‘Mastered for iTunes’ version completely buries Coltrane’s ethereal saxophone playing below the drums and the piano. This is horribly mixed compared to other versions of the album. It sounds like John Coltrane was in another building than the rest of the group in this mix.
I regret this purchase. A Love Supreme is a brilliant, must have album, but this re-mastering defeats much of what made this album great. Look for other versions or masters of this album.
A Love Supreme
A love supreme is forever and eternity. John Coltrane an genius. How can the World not notice. A Love Supreme is a sermon dedicated to Our heavenly Father. All praises to God the Father God the Son & God the Holy Ghost.
A Love Supreme
Really a great album. I wish I could say something that would explain why but I can't, it just is.
