A Love Supreme is a studio album by American Jazz saxophonist and bandleader John Coltrane, originally released in January 1965 via Impulse! Records.

One of the most important records ever made, John Coltrane's A Love Supreme was his pinnacle studio outing, that at once compiled all of the innovations from his past, spoke to the current of deep spirituality that liberated him from addictions to drugs and alcohol, and glimpsed at the future innovations of his final two and a half years.

Recorded over two days in December 1964, Coltrane 's classic quartet - Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Jimmy Garrison - stepped into the studio and created one of the most the most thought-provoking, concise, and technically pleasing albums of their bountiful relationship.

From the undulatory (and classic) bass-line at the intro to the last breathy notes, Coltrane is at the peak of his logical and emotionally varied soloing, while the rest of the group is completely attuned to his spiritual vibe.

Composed of four parts, each has a thematic progression. "Acknowledgement" is the awakening to a spiritual life from the darkness of the world; it trails off with the saxophonist chanting the suite's title. "Resolution" is an amazingly beautiful, somewhat turbulent segment. It portrays the dedication required for discovery on the path toward spiritual understanding. "Pursuance" searches deeply for that experience, while "Psalm" portrays that discovery and the realization of enlightenment with humility.

Although sometimes aggressive and dissonant, this isn't Coltrane at his most furious or adventurous. A Love Supreme not only attempts but realises the ambitious undertaking of Coltrane's concept; his emotional, searching, sometimes prayerful journey is made abundantly clear.

A Love Supreme conveys much without overstatement. It is almost impossible to imagine any jazz collection without it.

Check out the tracks: “Acknowledgement” and “Resolution”.
