A Love Supreme

Posted by Al Hathaway Wednesday, July 29, 2015

In a conversation today with Avon Bellamy, we reflected on the impact of John Coltrane's "Love Supreme" album.

It was recorded in Decemeber 1964. America was in the midst of the Vietnam War, Civil Rights struggles, Dr. King, Jr. and Malcom X, Muhammed Ali, and the brewing racial distrubance in the air.

America needed a calming influence to, at least, temporarily release tension and, focus people's minds on the higher order of life. John Coltrane delivered with this amazing album of sound, spirituality, and resonance.

Without any need for herbal or pharmaceutical stimulant, Coletrane is able to lift your mind and spirit to another plain. If love is the essence of God, Coltrane dips you into the soothing balm of love supreme and allows you to touch the hem of God's garment.

If you need a spiritual lift and want to reflect and relax, go to your uncle's closet and pick up his copy of this album, gather your family, especially your children, and expose them to John Coltrane at his best.

Over 50 years later, this recording is as fresh and stimulating as it was when it was first released.

Yes, a Love Supreme, a Love Supreme!!!!
