This 1964 masterpiece is one of the classic jazz albums. It’s also a fine introduction to Coltrane’s work, situated as it is between his “standard” style and his more interesting (and therefore less popular) experimental period. “Heads” and solos flow into one another freely in a jazz stream-of-consciousness; in fact, many of the jazz “solos” are more like classical “development sections”, where Trane takes fragments from the main theme and repeats them in various keys (that may or may not be related to the accompaniment). Then there are those timbral innovations, such as the chanting of “a love supreme” in multiple overdubs, and the timpani solo by the drummer, Elvin Jones. The whole album is a sound experience that is still as fresh now as when it was recorded.

Coltrane's classic album remains as fantastic as ever. It's a rewarding listen even for individuals who don't think of themselves as 'jazz people', the quality of the great performances shining through track after track. It's highly recommended.

The most beloved of John Coltrane in his progressive period. This is his most accessible CD before he lands into the avant-garde period where he loses a lot of followers.

One of the great Coltrane albums (and with a second disc containing the whole album performed live, with the usual Coltrane twists!). A must for Coltrane fans or anyone who digs jazz!
