Info for A Love Supreme (Remastered)
Split into four movements across 33 minutes, and often included as one of the greatest albums of all time, ‘A Love Supreme’ was recorded in one session in 1964 by John Coltrane's quartet. Widely regarded by aficionados as among the jazz legend's finest works, and an essential purchase for any fan of jazz.
Rolling Stone reviewed the album as “one of the most compelling, spiritual testimonies in the history of jazz.” It sold significantly more than Coltrane’s previous works, and was, according to Q magazine “a four-part affirmation of religious faith, and simply one of the most influential records of the '60s. It's challenging and intense, but an essential and ultimately very beautiful album,” and by Mojo as “a remarkable, challenging listen...It's the definitive version of a definitive moment.'
John Coltrane saw the album-length suite A Love Supreme as his gift to God. The world has come to see it as a classic -- not only Coltrane's best-known work, but one of the most important and influential jazz records ever made. Now, for the first time, the full story of A Love Supreme is available in one package.
The first disc of this deluxe edition consists of A Love Supreme as released in 1965. The second disc includes the John Coltrane Quartet's only live performance of the suite, recorded at the Antibes jazz festival that summer and receiving its first authorized release. Most notably, it also includes the long-rumored sextet version of the opening movement, receiving its first release of any kind.
Mastered by the original recording engineer, Rudy Van Gelder, and containing extensive annotation and many photographs, this is the definitive edition of an indisputable masterpiece.
'A Love Supreme wasn't a jazz record. They were just trying to make a musical statement.' (Ravi Coltrane)
'John Coltrane had complete empathy with what was going on around him. He could see the world, and this music is a reflection of that empathy, and it's something to aspire to - spiritually, personally, and musically.' (Branford Marsalis)
