Overview

One of the greatest albums in jazz history just got even better. John Coltrane’s magnum opus, A Love Supreme, is now fleshed out in this historic double CD with a rare 1956 live performance recorded in France, as well as the much-discussed but previously unissued version of “Acknowledgement” featuring saxophonist Archie Shepp and bassist Art Davis alongside Coltrane's quartet. Although the original studio performance of the suite remains as breathtaking as ever, the additional material adds greatly to our general appreciation of this masterpiece of modern music. Both in the studio and on the stage, the intensity and focus of Coltrane’s “Classic Quartet” with drummer Elvin Jones, pianist McCoy Tyner, and bassist Jimmy Garrison is always inspirational. The influence of this ensemble and the standard recording of A Love Supreme has remained undiminished for 37 years, and no contemporary jazz artist has yet been able to match Coltrane’s achievements.

why does all true jazz sound so utterly confusing? it sounds as though he is trying to make up his mind... coltrane, parker... they all sound so lost until later in their careers... or lives. the polished jazz is so soothing. the early jazz is just confusing. i prefer the solid blues if i had to choose... luckily, i do not have to choose. i can play it ALL whenever i choose. God Bless Coltrane for taking his brilliant journey through his life's and music's ups and downs, and for allowing us to join him... perpetually through the confusion to HOPEFULLY find HARMONY.

He had a Christian background, but was neither a 'born again' Christian NOR a Muslim when he wrote this. Please read the liner notes by his son Ravi Coltrane before you argue with me. He was apparently into the occult, i.e. numerology, etc. Great album too.

Wonderful album, perhaps the best jazz ever produced. (Contrary to a previous review, Coltrane was a born-again Christian when he wrote this, not Muslim.)

A gigantic composition split into 4 parts, how nice. Slow and easy and very relaxing, that's the best way to describe this album. It also has the same lineup from Ballads, another great Trane album.

Definetely Coltrane's best album. It swings hard with overpowering energy but remains perfect to each note. One of the best jazz albums ever made.

EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT 'A LOVE SUPREME'. YES IT IS A BRILLIANT PEICE OF MUSICAL LITERATURE. WHAT IT DOES TO ME IS TAKES ME TO A DIFFERENT PLACE EMOTIONALLY EACH TIME I HEAR IT. A FAILED ROMANCE. A NEW LOVE. THE JOY AND PAIN OF LIFE. ONE NEVER TIRES OF THIS MUSIC. IF YOU LOVE MUSIC, NOT JAZZ MUSIC, BUT IF YOU JUST LOVE WHAT MUSIC REALLY DOES FOR THE SOUL; THEN YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS.

I was introduced to this album through Spike Lee's movie ''Mo Better Blues''...from the minute I heard it I was in love and had to have the album....Each different version of the song takes you to a different place and vibe...I HIGHLY recommend it to others who have yet to experience Coltrane fully..this is the perfect introduction to a perfect musician.

It is so rare, especially these days, to come across an arist with a sense of humility to them. It is even more rare to come across an artist that imparts that humility in their music. In 1964, John Coltrane was that artist. With ''A Love Supreme'', Coltrane created was is arguably the greatest jazz album ever made(sorry, ''Kind of Blue'' fanatics). What was so amazing about this record was that it was so simple, due to the fact that Coltrane was giving praise to Allah for all of his acomplishments. Therefore, he was able to put his very heart and soul into every note and inflection. The result is an album divided into three parts; the Acknowledgement, the Resolution, and the Pursuance. This is truly classic material that people of any genre can come to enjoy.
