A Love Supreme by John Coltrane

This is, literally, John Coltrane’s staggeringly legendary 'A Love Supreme', and you shouldn’t really need to be told any more than that in order to pounce on it. Spiritual and energetic, melodic but hinting towards Coltrane’s later free explorations, this is deservedly a classic. Considered by many to be one of the most important records ever made.

Holy shit

This is the bomb

Enough to blow the dust off any old brain.

It's a four part suite the first track "Acknowledgement" contains the mantra and motif that gives the album it's name "A Love Supreme" you'll hear the mantra repeated on every instrument in the band and be drawn into a trance keeping your ears glued until the end of this album.

This album is like being given a Godly sermon of jazz by an your holy preacher John Coltrane.

It's as if Coltrane lifts away everything you're thinking about and for that time you're just fixated on his virtuosic sax playing the deep double bass lines and complex drum patterns and the rare chords and modal patterns.

This the best example of Coltrane in my opinion because it retains elements of his early bop style yet mixes them with his more and more avant-garde and eastern influences that he was getting before nearly all his 'traditional' jazz influence was all but lost for a far more spiritual avant-garde jazz direction which is equally interesting especially with Pharoah Saunders and Alice Coltrane.
