John Coltrane - A Love Supreme / 180 gram vinyl
Right from the very first hearing, absolutely
every single jazz critic shared the same opinion - whether trained
musicians or not, true or would-be jazz expert: A Love Supreme is John Coltrane's most important recording. And the rave reviews which appeared in the magazines Downbeat, Jazz Hot, Jazz Podium and Swingjournal
reflected this: critics all over the world, in America, Europe and
Japan recognized that Coltrane's deep religious belief had influenced
both his approach to life and his music-making. It not only enabled him
to express himself with great intensity but also lent him the necessary
inner peace to conceive a work of almost 40 minutes in length and to
lead his quartet along the same path as himself.
Recorded in 1964.
