A Love Supreme: The Story of John Coltrane's Signature Album

Ashley Kahn


Few albums within the canon of well known track have had the effect, resonance, and persistence of John Coltrane's 1965 vintage A Love Supreme-a list that proved jazz was once a becoming medium for non secular exploration and for the expression of the elegant. Bringing a similar clean and interesting technique that characterised his significantly acclaimed Kind of Blue: The Making of the Miles Davis Masterpiece, Ashley Kahn tells the tale of the genesis, production, and aftermath of this vintage recording. that includes interviews with multiple hundred musicians, manufacturers, pals, and kinfolk; unpublished interviews with Coltrane and bassist Jimmy Garrison; and rankings of never-before-seen pictures, A Love Supreme balances biography, cultural context, and musical research in a passionate and revealing portrait.
