This album is essentially a personal re-affirmation of his faith and his own spiritual awakening sparked by his decision to stop taking drugs in 1958 after being thrown out of Miles Davis’s band. The quartet of Coltrane, Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner, and Jimmy Garrison stepped into the studio and created one of the most thought-provoking, concise, and technically pleasing albums of their bountiful relationship. Composed in four parts, each has a thematic progression leading to an understanding of spirituality through meditation. It is almost impossible to imagine a world without A Love Supreme having been made, and it is equally impossible to imagine any jazz collection without it.
This is the most famous jazz album ever and recognised as Davis’ masterpiece. The album is essential mood music, experimental and spontaneous. Apart from Miles, it features a stella line-up of Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, and Wynton Kelly. Davis did not allow any rehearsal before the recording but laid out the themes before the tape rolled, and then the band improvised. The end results were wondrous and still crackle with vitality.
